COCHRAN: POPE FRANCIS’ MESSAGE OF SERVICE AN INSPIRATION

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) today issued the following statement regarding Pope Francis’ historic address to a joint meeting of Congress:

“I am grateful to have had a chance to listen to Pope Francis, whose basic message of mercy and care for the least among us underscores fundamental characteristics of our American culture. Mississippians are well acquainted with those traits. They are exhibited in our dedication to charity and work to help those in need, not only in times of disaster, but every day. His message of service is a valuable one, and I hope that Pope Francis’ words will continue to inspire.”
