Cardinal Donald Wuerl, the Archbishop of Washington, D.C., tells Newsmax TV that it is just as important to examine ourselves as it is to “to open our hearts to the victims, open our hearts to the families of the victims,” of Friday's school shooting in Connecticut.

“This is a terrible, terrible tragedy,” Wuerl, the capital's Roman Catholic archbishop since 2006, says in an exclusive interview.

“But we also need to look into our hearts,” Wuerl continued. “What is it in our culture, what is it in our society that leads to this type of violence?

“Is it that we are so focused on ourselves? Is that we don’t regard the dignity of every single person, the value of every single life as something precious? Have we created such a mindset in our country that human life isn’t considered any longer precious, sacred, something we’re not allowed to take?

“We have to do some soul-searching.”
