A Daily Quote to Inspire Your Catholic Faith

“…from every mountainside, let freedom ring . . . When we let freedom ring—when we let it ring from every village and every hamlet, from every state and every city, we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual, ‘Free at last! Free at last! Thank God a-mighty, we are free at last.’”

–Martin Luther King Jr., I Have a Dream, 1963
