The Pope Speaks...to a New President

Today, Pope Benedict XVI sent a congratulatory message to President Barack Obama, on the occasion of his inauguration. The message read, in part:

Under your leadership may the American people continue to find in their religious and political heritage the spiritual values and ethical principles needed to cooperate in the building of a truly just and free society, marked by respect for the dignity, equality and rights of each of its members, especially the poor, the outcast, and those who have no voice.

May God bless us all!
