“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.”
Franklin D. Roosevelt
