This is Bishop Michael Burbidge of the Catholic Diocese of Arlington. This week marks the culmination of months of campaigning for national, state, and local offices, all of which are sure to affect our lives in ways big and small. Some will celebrate and feel relief. Others will feel frustrated and disappointed. Dear brothers and sisters, let us not revel or wallow over the results. Instead let us remember that our great nation should be unified in serving God, the King of all Kings. No matter the outcome, we should vow that this is the time to show unity, respect, and civility for our fellow citizens, as well as for those that are elected into office. Our country needs to heal. In order to move forward as a people and as a community, we must be committed to showing that despite our differences we remain now, and always will be, “One Nation Under God.”
