From Fr. Gillespie:
The passing of Rep. John Lewis leaves a void in the American conscience. For so many years and in so many courageous ways, he lived the Gospel of justice inspired by his Christian faith. Many of you may recall that last year Rep. Lewis spoke from the altar of our main church when he gave an eloquent eulogy for his friend and fellow Congressman, Rep. John Dingell. You can view his moving eulogy on C-SPAN’s website.
Now, as our nation mourns this heroic leader, eulogies will be made about his wisdom and witness. During this time, when we grieve this great man amidst a nation filled with strife, let us pray for the causes of justice which Rep. John Lewis served for so long and so valiantly. May he rest in peace.
