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?

Several collaborators have material that might be useful for your consideration. Pax Christi USA shared a reflection by Bishop John Stowe, OFM Conv on Wednesday that concludes with the charge “to be instruments of healing for all who have been excluded and do not have the luxury of waiting.”

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.
