Dear Mr. President:
We, the Council members of the St. Frances X. Cabrini Fraternity of the Secular Franciscan Order, want to express our appreciation for your position on a number of issues that are of utmost importance to Catholics and many other conservative Christians as well as Americans of other beliefs.
We hold in high regard: the respect for human life from the moment of conception until natural death, the freedom to live according to our beliefs, the sanctity of marriage between one man and one woman, the end of human trafficking and freedom from being required to act against our conscience, among other issues. President Trump, we ask you to keep sacred the above concerns for the benefit of the Republic for which we stand.
We thank you for the actions you have already taken on some of these issues. We applaud you for including a number of wise and dedicated members in your staff that understand the importance of these and related issues. Be assured that you are in our prayers. A Mass has been offered for wisdom and the guidance of the Holy Spirit for you and your administration.
Bob Burtscher, OFS
Minister of the St. Frances X. Cabrini Fraternity
