Sisters of Charity of Seton Hill United States Province Statement in Response to the Events of January 6, 2021 in Washington, DC
The Sisters of Charity of Seton Hill are deeply saddened by the violent and lawless actions of citizens who caused injury, death, and destruction in our nation’s capital yesterday. We condemn the violence and the rampant disrespect for lawmakers carrying out their duties that we witnessed. We call on citizens and their elected leaders to join us in embracing attitudes, language, and behavior that will model decency, respect, liberty, and justice for all persons. We urge citizens and leaders to be united with us in prayer for protection and peace during the remaining days of the current administration, the inauguration of President-elect Biden, and for the restoration of dignity to our political system and our democracy in the future.
