FAIRFAX, VIRGINIA

Dear Friends,
I share some of Pope Francis’ words from his visit
to the United States last year while in Philadelphia.
“One of the highlights of my visit is to
stand here, before Independence Hall, the
birthplace of the United States of
America. It was here that the freedoms
which define this country were first
proclaimed. The Declaraon of
Independence stated that all men and
women are created equal, that they are
endowed by their Creator with certain
inalienable rights, and that governments
exist to protect and defend those rights.
Those ringing words connue to inspire us
today, even as they have inspired peoples
throughout the world to fight for the
freedom to live in accordance with their
dignity.”
“History also shows that these or any
truths must constantly be reaffirmed, reappropriated and defended. The history
of this naon is also the tale of a constant
effort, lasng to our own day, to embody
those lo8y principles in social and polical
life. We remember the great struggles
which led to the abolion of slavery, the
extension of vong rights, the growth of
the labor movement, and the gradual
effort to eliminate every kind of racism
and prejudice directed at further waves of
new Americans. This shows that, when a
country is determined to remain true to
its principles, those founding principles
based on respect for human dignity, it is
strengthened and renewed. When a
country is mindful of its roots, it keeps
growing, it is renewed and it connues to
embrace newcomers, new individuals and
new peoples….”
“Religious freedom certainly means the
right to worship God, individually and in
community, as our consciences dictate.
But religious liberty, by its nature,
transcends places of worship and the
June 5, 2016
private sphere of individuals and families.
Because religion itself, the religious
dimension, is not a subculture; it is part of
the culture of every people and every
naon….”
“Our religious tradions remind us that,
as human beings, we are called to
acknowledge an Other, who reveals our
relaonal identy in the face of every
effort to impose “a uniformity to which
the egosm of the powerful, the
conformism of the weak, or the ideology
of the utopian would seek to impose on
us” (M. de Certeau).”
“In a world where various forms of
modern tyranny seek to suppress
religious freedom, or, as I said earlier, to
try to reduce it to a subculture without
right to a voice in the public square, or to
use religion as a pretext for hatred and
brutality, it is imperave that the
followers of the various religious
tradions join their voices in calling for
peace, tolerance and respect for the
dignity and the rights of others.”
In Christ,
Rev. David A. Whitestone
