Statement in Response to the Violence in the Capitol

In the spirit of the nonviolent Jesus and the example of peacemaking handed down to us from Saints Francis and Clare of Assisi, the Felician Sisters of North America decry the violence that occurred at our nation’s Capitol and the attempts to interfere in the democratic process of certifying the election.  We join other people of faith in praying for the safety of our legislators, our President and Vice President-elect, and all who work to uphold democracy.
