Inspired by Washingtons

Our Archbishop's "Love One Another" email newsletter sends this Extra of a Litany for Liberty: For use during the Fortnight for Freedom, from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

And as Bishop John Carroll said in his February 22, 1800 Eulogy on George Washington,
"May these United States flourish in pure and undefiled religion, in morality, peace, union, liberty, and the enjoyment of their excellent Constitution, as long as respect, honor, and veneration shall gather around the name of Washington; that is, whilst there still shall be any surviving record of human events!"
