Miami Catholics Unite in Prayer After Tragedy

Prayer Hands

Following the tragic condo collapse in Miami last week, Catholics from around the state are uniting in prayer for victims and survivors of the event. In this Catholic News Agency article, the pastor at St. Joseph's in Miami, Fr. Jose Sosa, told reporters on Monday that his parish is responding to the tragedy with prayer and relief efforts. He noted on Friday that nine parish families were among those unaccounted for in the building collapse. "The community is bound by a Spirit of prayer," he stated in the article. 

The Vatican also sent a statement of solidarity on behalf of Pope Francis to the Miami archdiocese, on Saturday. Pope Francis "offers heartfelt prayer that Almighty God will grant eternal peace to those who have died, comfort to those who mourn their loss, and strength to all those affected by this immense tragedy," the Vatican stated.

Our prayers are with the victims of this tragedy and their families at this difficult time.
