.- Cardinal Justin Rigali issued a statement following  President Bush’s re-election expressing “prayerful good wishes” for the president and his family, and urging him to “remain steadfast in the defense of traditional family values” and to continue stressing the need to protect the most vulnerable and the unborn.

”My brother bishops and I will strive to work with the President as he deals with the difficult issues facing our nation,” said the Cardinal.  “I commend President Bush for his emphasis on the sacredness of human life demonstrated during his first term and I urge him to continue in his second term to stress the need to protect the most vulnerable among us and all human life.”

”I ask the President to remain steadfast in the defense of traditional family values and in recognition that marriage exists only between one man and one woman,” said Cardinal Maida. 

“It is my hope for the future,” he added, “that the government of the United States will protect the unborn, ensure compassion for the poor and needy, seek justice for the oppressed and work unremittingly for world peace.”
