Reprinted from the Conference of Major Superiors of Men Justice & Peace Alert

Clergy, faith, and academic leaders who have journeyed with their respective ministry communities this election season may find themselves facing unprecedented questions. When will the election anxiety conclude? How do we wait in the unknowing? How do we proceed with generosity and kindness if the results do not come back the way that we anticipated? Where do we go from here?

The Maryknoll Office for Global Concerns has compiled a list of prayers, virtual events, and other resources here. The USCCB’s Civilize It campaign includes a social media pledge, an examination of conscience, and pastoral aids here
