Your Excellency, dear Mr. Ambassador,
knowing how personally close you have been over the years to the newly inaugurated President of the United States of America Mr. Barrack Obama who has now begun his second presidential term, I would like to express my congratulations and I would like to ask to convey them to the White House.
As the importance and impact of the USA largely surpass their borders we pray to the Lord that he may give Mr. President all the necessary gifts that he would act with wisdom, decision and God´s blessing to the common good not only of your compatriots but of all the humankind.
With thanks for your continuous support and cooperation
Cardinal Dominik Duka OP, Archbishop of Prague and President of the Czech Bishops´ Conference
