SCA Joins the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas in Condemning Violence at U.S. Capitol

The Institute Leadership Team of the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas strongly denounces the violence and disrespect exhibited on Wednesday, January 6, by insurgents who stormed the U.S. Capitol. This hateful and intentional behavior, meant to disrupt the peaceful transfer of power that is central to our democracy, is deplorable and totally disregards Gospel values and the principles of other faiths and people of good will. This deliberate assault on the soul of our nation shattered trust and common purpose while stoking suspicion, fear and division.

We must unite, actively work toward a culture that promotes peace and nonviolence, and change violent, racist and white supremacist systems and structures. We must engage in sustained dialogue to bridge differences and restore trust in all circles of public life.

Please join the Sisters of Mercy in prayers for healing, peace and unity to surround the United States and all who live here. We pledge to continue to collaborate with communities and organizations that foster nonviolence and work to promote constructive dialogue and change reflecting who we are as a nation that strives to witness to liberty and justice for all.
