Archbishop Gustavo García-Siller, MSpS

I invite all to pray for the great country in which we live, one nation under God. The closing line of the Declaration of Independence emphasizes a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, and the Catechism of the Catholic Church states that the right to the exercise of freedom, especially in moral and religious matters, is an inalienable requirement for the dignity of the human person. We have truly been blessed. Let us embrace family, friends, and neighbors as we remember in a special way the freedoms and liberties which we have that distinguish our land for most others around the world. There is still work to do to achieve all our founding ideals, but we have so much to be thankful for. May God bless you and God bless the USA!
