US envoy joins in Assisi pilgrimage

Catholic World News - October 27, 2011

The Obama administration sent the US ambassador-at-large for religious freedom, Suzan Johnson Cook, to participate in the October 27 pilgrimage for peace in Assisi.

“We have found where nations have religious freedom, there’s more stability,” Cook told Vatican Radio. She said that she was “excited about the strategic dialogue” with the Vatican and with other religious leaders.

The American ambassador said that her role is “looking for common ground—for places where there are pragmatic openings” to expand the sphere of religious freedom. Speaking for the US government, she said: “We’re very concerned about religious minorities all over the world.”
