Hirono: Pope Francis Calls For Compassion

Senator Mazie K. Hirono released the following statement on Pope Francis’ address to Congress:

“Pope Francis’ address to a joint meeting of Congress was a reminder to us, the American people, that our country was founded as a place where families can fulfill their dreams if we fight for the common good.

“His call for compassion, to follow the Golden Rule, and his acknowledgement that we are a nation of immigrants, while also acknowledging the injustices suffered by the first peoples of this country, particularly resonated with me.”
