This morning at the Vatican, Pope Benedict XVI received the letters of accreditation from the new U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See, Dr. Miguel H. Diaz. (EWTN News)
Quoting his predecessor Benedict XVI said, 'a society lacks solid foundations when, on the one hand, it asserts values such as the dignity of the person, justice and peace, but then, on the other hand, radically acts to the contrary by allowing or tolerating a variety of ways in which human life is devalued and violated, especially where it is weak or marginalized.'
It sounds to me like the Holy Father understands the strengths and weaknesses of the United States, her people and her politics. Thank God that we have a pope who will speak the truth in love. Pray that those who are in positions of power (in our country) will heed the call.
