:Pope Condemns Shooting in Suburban Chicago; At Least 6 People Were Killed at July 4th Parade

 Pope Francis expressed shock and sadness over the mass shooting that led to the deaths of at least six people and wounded some 30 others at a Fourth of July parade in the Chicago suburb of Highland Park, the National Catholic Register website reports today (July 5, 2022).

In a telegram sent to Cardinal Blase Cupich, the archbishop of Chicago, the pope condemned the "senseless shooting," appealing for a rejection of all forms of violence.

Pope Francis asked the cardinal to convey his spiritual closeness to all affected by this attack.
