CWN Editor's Note: “Dear brothers and sisters, I offer an affectionate greeting to the people of the United States of America, shaken by the recent siege at the Congress,” Pope Francis said following his January 10 Angelus address. “I pray for those who lost their life – five – they lost it in those dramatic moments.
