Joe Biden’s Catholic Faith was weaved throughout the Democratic convention last week.
But, it was his friend, Senator Chris Coons reflection on Biden’s faith that moved me the most.
Here is an excerpt:
“I’m proud to stand with Joe, and I’m proud to be part of a Democratic Party that respects Americans of all faiths or no particular faith, because, here in the United States, we’re free to practice whatever religion we choose, or none at all.”
“My friend Joe often speaks the words of theologian Soren Kierkegaard: “Faith sees best in the dark.” From the COVID-19 pandemic and the economic crisis to our national reckoning over racial injustice, these are dark and challenging times for America, but with faith and hard work, we can see the way forward. I believe that, I know many Americans believe that, and Joe Biden does, too.”
