Holy Union Sisters respond to the violent siege of the United States Capital.
The Leadership Team of the United States Province of the Holy Union Sisters join the 1300 leaders of Catholic sisters nationwide who are members of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious in praying for peace after witnessing the violence and lawlessness yesterday in our nation’s capital. We are deeply concerned about the state of our country and the future of our democracy. Our hearts ached as we watched these despicable actions that threaten not only to destroy the seat of our government but to rend the bonds that unite us.
As members of an international congregation whose “call is to be at the heart of the world revealing God’s love”, we renew our commitment to the common good. Our charism of union calls us to take up the challenge to pray and act to restore the bonds that unite our country. We commend and thank the members of Congress who courageously continued their service to the nation last night even amid the chaos.
