  • The Honorable Donald Trump

    President of the United States of America

    The White House

    Washington

     

    Upon your inauguration as the forty-fifth President of the United States of America, I offer you my cordial good wishes and the assurance of my prayers that Almighty God will grant you wisdom and strength in the exercise of your high office.  At a time when our human family is beset by grave humanitarian crises demanding far-sighted and united political responses, I pray that your decisions will be guided by the rich spiritual and ethical values that have shaped the history of the American people and your nation’s commitment to the advancement of human dignity and freedom worldwide.  Under your leadership, may America’s stature continue to be measured above all by its concern for the poor, the outcast and those in need who, like Lazarus, stand before our door.  With these sentiments, I ask the Lord to grant you and your family, and all the beloved American people, his blessings of peace, concord and every material and spiritual prosperity.

                                                                           FRANCISCUS PP.

  • Interesting he just said "freedom" instead of "religious freedom" or "freedom for the Catholic Church" or something else

  • There is no mention of Jesus.
    To live with the Saints in Heaven is all bliss and glory....To live with the saints on Earth is just another story!  (unknown)

    Freedom of the Church to preach the truth of the Gospel is implied.

  • Notice no mention of the great evil of abortion, which kills the body.  That doesn't seem to count for much with Francis I.  Nor the attacks on marriage, Christianity, and the family, which can lead to the loss of souls - that also does not seem important to Francis.

    And didn't Francis say that sins against the planet were the greatest evil today?  Or was it unemployed youth?  Or the lonely elderly?  Or is it "fakenews"? Or is it patriotism (aka "nationalism")? I can't keep up!  Anything, as long as it isn't in the Catechism!

    So says Francis, from behind his 30-foot  wall around the Vatican.  Mr. Bergoglio, tear down that wall!
