Nation's head military chaplain: After shooting, respect for life key


The shooting at Washington's Navy Yard Monday indicates a need for Americans to "restore the notion of respect for life," the U.S. bishop charged with overseeing the nation's Catholic military chaplains has said.

Issuing a statement as investigations into the shooting continued Monday afternoon, Archbishop Timothy Broglio said he had prayed for the victims of the attack at Mass and was "shocked and deeply saddened by the terrible loss of life."
