Franklin D. Roosevelt


Franklin Delano Roosevelt (1882–1945) was an American statesman and political leader who served as the 32nd president of the United States from 1933 until his death in 1945. A member of the Democratic Party, he won a record four presidential elections and became a central figure in world events during the first half of the 20th century. Roosevelt directed the federal government during most of the Great Depression, implementing his New Deal domestic agenda in response to the worst economic crisis in U.S. history. His third and fourth terms were dominated by World War II, which ended shortly after he died in office.


“What This Weary World Most Need”

“I have said, and I desire to reiterate it . . . what this weary world most needs is a revival of the spirit of religion. Would that such a revival could sweep the nations today and steer the hearts of men and women . . . to a reassertion of their belief in the Providence of God and the brotherhood of man. I doubt if there is in the world a single problem, whether social, political, or economic, which would not find ready solution if men and nations would rule their lives according to the plain teaching of the Sermon on the Mount.”
