Arlington, Va., Dec 5, 2016 / 16:35 pm
The Gospel is the answer to a wounded society, the new bishop of Arlington said in the wake of the presidential election.
"We'll continue to preach the Gospel," Bishop Michael Burbidge told CNA at a Dec. 5 press conference when he was asked what he would do as bishop to promote unity in society and in the Church after a tumultuous and divisive election cycle.
"Reminding us that we are all created in God's image and likeness," he continued. "We are all united as brothers and sisters."
Bishop Burbidge will officially be installed as the new Bishop of Arlington, Va. in a Dec. 6 Mass at St. Thomas More Cathedral, with Archbishop Christophe Pierre, who serves as the Apostolic Nuncio to the United States, and Archbishop William Lori of Baltimore both present.
