A new leader asks for wisdom, prayers
Archbishop Gregory Aymond greets new Louisiana Gov. John Edwards and his wife, Donna, during a Mass at St. Joseph Cathedral in Baton Rouge on Jan. 11.
Archbishop Aymond celebrated the Mass before Edwards’ inauguration later that day. During his homily, the archbishop said Edwards showed what kind of leader he would be by his choice of Scripture. Archbishop Aymond said Edwards asked only for “wisdom” to “do what is right and good for the great state of Louisiana.” (Photo by Richard Meek, The Catholic Commentator, Baton Rouge)
