November 8, 2020 — (Wilmington, Delaware) — The Most Reverend W. Francis Malooly, Bishop of the Catholic Diocese of Wilmington, has issued the following statement on the 2020 Presidential Election:
“St. Paul reminds us in today’s second reading that as Christians, we are called to be people of hope. No matter where we might fall on the political spectrum, we must seize this moment as an opportunity to begin to heal the crippling divisions in our great nation. These fractures were forged over decades and reconciliation will take time and patience. It begins with each of us. Today I congratulate President-elect Biden. We all must pray for the President-elect and President Trump during this time of transition and we look to the future with hope that as one Nation under God, we will continue be a beacon of freedom and prosperity to the world.”
The Catholic Diocese of Wilmington was established in 1868 and comprises 56 parishes, 18 missions and 30 schools serving the State of Delaware and the nine counties of Maryland’s Eastern Shore. More information is available at www.cdow.org.
