Bishop Burbidge Celebrates Mass for Christian Unity
On the day when the nation honors the life and legacy of the late Dr. Martin Luther King, Junior, The Most Reverend Michael F. Burbidge paid tribute to Dr. King’s achievements and his memorable words in the celebration of a Mass for Christian Unity held at Sacred Heart Cathedral.
“Martin Luther King Jr. dreamed of a world in which all barriers would be lifted so that we would be united as one family,” the Bishop said. “In order for this unity to be more than a hope, a dream or a wish, we must be rooted in the fundamental truths and realities that form the foundation of our unity.”
Bishop Burbidge added, “Unity will be realized only when we see others as temples of the Holy Spirit and, thus, revere all of human life and respect the dignity of each and every person, especially those to be born, and the most vulnerable and weak in our midst.
