I have the right to worship as a Catholic and invite people to join me. There is no chapel space in the Capital building, and there shouldn’t be. But, when I am serving as chaplain of the US House of Representatives, I am surrendering my constitutional right to pray my way because I am in service to the people for whom I am serving.
~ Fr. Patrick Conroy, SJ
