At worship, grieving seek answers to massacre

Posted: Updated:
NEWTOWN, Conn. -

Congregations are flocking to houses of worship to try to make sense of the Connecticut school massacre that claimed the lives of 20 children and six adults.

Newtown, Conn., residents sought solace in each other's company while police work to find out why 20-year-old Adam Lanza would attack a school after killing his mother.

Six-year-old Jennifer Waters came to Mass on Sunday with a lot of questions. As she sat at a pew in the back, she asked her mother of the child victims: "Are they going to live with the angels?"

Rabbi Shaul Praver of Congregation Adeth Israel wanted to make one thing clear to 6-year-old Noah Pozner's classmates, saying: "This is not an act of God. This is an act of a crazy man."
