The Pope sent something very nice to the families of the dead and to those who were injured during the Wal Mart shooting last Summer.

Bishop Seitz recently traveled to the Vatican to visit with Pope Francis. (See photos here.) The Pope blessed 50 rosaries and sent them back to El Paso to be given to the families of the victims and to those who survived the wounds they suffered August 3rd.

Bishop Seitz wants to personally present the rosaries and is asking those entitled to one to reach out to the El Paso Diocese. (Info below.) According to the El Paso Herald-Post, the Bishop is planning to hold a prayer vigil on February 6th, at the Pastoral Center, at 5pm.

Those who cannot attend that prayer vigil will still get their rosary from Bishop Seitz, in person, at a later time.
