Dominican Sisters of Peace Respond to the Violence at the US Capitol on 1/6/2021

We, the Leadership Team of the Dominican Sisters of Peace, watched with disgust the blatant disregard for our country, the rule of law, and our honored traditions as thugs violently overpowered Capitol Police to disrupt Congress. We lament this moment of humiliation and shame.

The voice of the People is a core principle of our democracy. The People have spoken in selecting the next President. Along with our fellow citizens, we yearn for the restoration of calm, an orderly confirmation of the election by Congress, a peaceful transfer of power, and a return to the democratic values of our great nation.

With all people of faith, we pray for healing, for truth, for peace.

Listen to our heartbeats –  peace;

Peace for all.
