Commitment to the Common Good January 7, 2021

As members of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious, we stand with the more than 1,300 leaders of Catholic sisters nationwide as we make this statement and commitment to the common good:

The Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) joins with the world 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. We commend and thank the members of Congress who courageously continued their service to the nation last night even amid the chaos.

In our increasingly divided nation, we renew our commitment to the common good and pledge to take up the challenge to use our energy to repair our democracy and contribute to the work of building a more perfect union. We invite all people of goodwill to join us and we call on our elected leaders to point the way.
