"The crisis of marriage is because people do not know what the sacrament is, the beauty of the sacrament; they do not know that it is indissoluble, that it is for one's entire life," he said. "It's difficult."
"We come not as different religions but one in the Lord," said the Orlando Bishop said at an interfaith prayer vigil. Others in Florida and Texas allowed mourners to pray for Orlando in a special way and recognize the dignity of all people as children of God.
