A statement by Bishop Michael W. Fisher on the commemoration and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.:

“On this day when all lovers of peace honor the memory and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., let us recommit ourselves to cherishing and promoting the dignity of every person; to defeating what Pope Francis defines as the 'sin of racism,' whether in mind or in action and however blatant or subtle; and to demonstrating in these days of conflict and tension the desire for dialogue, understanding, and mutual respect.

“As Dr. King reminds us: ‘People fail to get along because they fear each other; they fear each other because they don’t know each other; they do not know each other because they have not communicated with each other.’

“May his memory inspire us always and in every place to discern the good in others and, by our actions, reveal the grace and goodness of God himself.”
