Bishop Joseph Kurtz, president of the USCCB, issued a statement following the election. The following is an excerpt: “Every election brings a new beginning. Some may wonder whether the country can reconcile, work together and fulfill the promise of a more perfect union. Through the hope Christ offers, I believe God will give us the strength to heal and unite.

Let us pray for leaders in public life that they may rise to the responsibilities entrusted to them with grace and courage. And may all of us as Catholics help each other be faithful and joyful witnesses to the healing love of Jesus.” You can read the full statement on the USCCB website.

The USCCB also released a post-election prayer, available to read here.
