Let’s be real, friends. It was a terrible election cycle, and it’s only grown worse since November. For those of us who strive to put our Catholic faith above our American politics we are being challenged in new ways every day.
Something dark is brewing in our world. We may disagree on specific policies to combat that darkness, but the one thing we are united in is the call to hope, prayer, and action.
So what is the resistance?
We’re a group of Catholic women concerned about the growing rise of hate and injustice in the world at large, but specifically in the American political arena. We opposed our current president during his campaign and have continued that opposition after his election. He does not speak for us or the causes we hold dear to our hearts.
Some of us lean left, some of us lean right, all of us aim to emulate the words of the prophet Isaiah:
“learn to do good;
rescue the oppressed,
defend the orphan,
plead for the widow.”
But despite our #NeverTr*mp status, the reality is he’s here, and he isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
So we fight.
We share resources and support each other as we stand up for the lives of innocents, immigrants, the marginalized, and the oppressed. We refuse to normalize hatred, and we refuse to sit back and let Nice Catholic Lady Syndrome keep us from standing beside our brothers and sisters whose lives are at stake.
So join us on Facebook and Twitter as we share resources and action items, join together in prayer, and use our privilege to amplify the voices being drowned out in our world.
