Archbishop Elpidophoros of America concluded his speech on Wednesday night with a unifying message using the main slogan of the Democratic Party convention: “We the People”.
The Archbishop sent out a clear social message in the form of a prayer, asking God to inspire all people to fight against injustice, inequality and hatred in order to defend the common good.
The programming of the third day of the convention featured important speeches from different high-profile figures, such as Kamala Harris, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
“Most merciful and loving God, as we gather in soberness of mind and of heart for the sake of our nation and its future, we pray that you will shine the light of your countenance upon the delegates of this convention and upon Vice President Joe Biden for the highest office in the land.
As we face the future as one American nation, bring us to our best selves and inspire our better angels, in peace, in fairness and in generosity, that we may fight against injustice, inequality and hatred and we may achieve a common good. A ‘greater’ good. In the name of the Holy Trinity we pray. Amen,” the Archbishop of America said.
