Picking up where we left off yesterday:
9:30 a.m. ET: The national Catholic newspaper Our Sunday Visitor offers three post-election perspectives:
– Editor John Norton (a proud member of the CNS alumni association from his work in our Rome bureau) writes that Catholics must find ways to work together after this divisive election season even though some are jubilant at the results and some are sickened to the core because of the president-elect’s “pro-abortion ideology.”
– Longtime Catholic author and commentator Russell Shaw has a column titled “What an Obama presidency means for Catholics,” in which he notes both the challenges facing the pro-life movement and the questions surrounding the influence of the U.S. bishops over their flock.
– Also online is the paper’s first post-election editorial, simply headlined “President Obama.”
