For people of faith, the greater reality is God’s love. Our congregations have provided the space and silence for intense prayer leading up to this election. Today we are waking to a new reality as a nation with a new President-elect. Now, our congregations must be places where political opponents can worship together in peace. I acknowledge the weight of this pastoral ministry for the faithful priests who shepherd our congregations. I am praying with you and for you as your sanctuaries offer true sanctuary from the din and degradation of this election cycle.
