In his keynote speech to the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast, Archbishop Broglio noted that ours is a nation founded on truths, virtues, and principles. The Archbishop observed: “The US was not established, because of a common ethnic or racial origin, or a common language,or those other elements that characterize many other nations of the world.  It is based on certain self-evident truths: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.”
