On this day, Jan. 20, 1961, President John F. Kennedy delivered
his Inaugural Address, following prayers by a rabbi, a Protestant
minister, a Catholic cardinal, a Greek Orthodox bishop, and a poem
by Robert Frost. President Kennedy stated: “The same revolutionary
beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the
globe – The belief that the rights of man come not from the
generosity of the state but from the hand of God.” President Kennedy
concluded: “Let us go forth… asking His blessing and His
help…knowing that here on earth God’s work must truly be our own.”
