Pope to Congress: Cooperate, Work for the Common Good

In his address to Congress this week the Holy Father asked lawmakers to work together for the common good. Pope Francis called for a renewed spirit of cooperation:

“The challenges facing us today call for a renewal of that spirit of cooperation, which has accomplished so much good throughout the history of the United States. The complexity, the gravity and the urgency of these challenges demand that we pool our resources and talents, and resolve to support one another, with respect for our differences and our convictions of conscience.”
