Audience with Pope Francis with Families of Homicide Victims
The undersigned on this petition support the request of the families of murder victims to have an audience with His Holiness Pope Francis during his upcoming visit to Philadelphia. The petition is being circulated by the Wilfredo Rojas, Aleida Garcia and the JusticeforALEXnow.com Committee.
In the past, you have met privately with families of murder victims, and we hope that you will do so again by blessing our families, who are looking for healing and justice, with an audience,.
The death of our son Alejandro Rojas Garcia, on January 24, 2015, has catapulted us in to the most difficult experience in our family's history. As we connect with other families, which are going through this tragedy, we have been moved to request an audience with His
Holiness to allow us the grace of his presence through an audience of prayer.
during his upcoming visit to Philadelphia.
Life after the murder of a loved one is very difficult, yet our faith in God gives us the resiliency to proceed in obedience to his commandments and in peace. You, as our Holy Father, have shown enormous sensitivity to the persistence grief of murder family survivors. We pray that many families from around the country will have an opportunity to receive your guidance and comfort.
We are praying that this audience be granted for families that are suffering devastation in every aspect of life, as a result of the homicide.
Thank you for your support and participation in this endeavor. Peace to all.
