‘Let us not see each other in the divisive light of Democrat or Republican or any other political party, but rather, let us see the face of Christ in our neighbors,’
said Archbishop Joseph Kurtz of Louisville, Kentucky, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.
Bishops in the United States called on Catholics to pray for elected officials on the morning following the 2016 presidential election, exhorting them to work for unity and to promote the common good.
“Now is the moment to move toward the responsibility of governing for the common good of all citizens,”
Archbishop Joseph Kurtz of Louisville, Kentucky, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, stated Wednesday, following Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump’s electoral victory.
Trump scored a surprising victory in the Electoral College Tuesday night, ascending to the presidency despite being projected to losethe popular vote to his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.
