Statement of the Roman Union Ursuline Sisters of the United States

The Roman Union Ursuline Sisters of the United States, called to be artisans of peace, unite in prayer for all the people of our nation.  We watched with horror at the lawless events unfolding in our nation’s Capitol on Wednesday and we are deeply concerned for the future of our democracy.

Today we add our voice to that of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious and many others in pledging to commit our energy to “helping to build a more perfect union.”  We will work with others to proclaim the Gospel message of nonviolence, of hope and of peace during this time of great pain and division.  We call on all Americans to join with us to encourage our newly elected leadership to lead the way to a more united country.
