Cardinal Francis George Speaks at BYU

His Eminence Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I. delivered a message February 23 to thousands of students, faculty and Church leaders at Brigham Young University.  His message emphasized that Catholics and Latter-day Saints (Mormons) are important partners in the defense of religious freedom in the public square.

Reflecting on Cardinal George’s visit to Utah and address at Brigham Young University, Bishop John Wester of the Salt Lake City Diocese said, “This is not the beginning, but the continuation of something that’s already begun — a very fine relationship between The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the Catholic Church.”

Bishop Wester was pleased to hear Cardinal George describe “parallels in our religions” associated with religious freedom.
