Inauguration Day

January 19, 1961

January 20, 1961

Today, a new president, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, dedicates himself to the leadership and service of our country in the four critical years that lie ahead. Today, all Americans, regardless of political affiliation, irrespective of race or creed, close ranks and become as one in wishing for him a successful administration. As he assumes the solemn responsibilities of the office of President, we pray for him the good health to bear its heavy burdens, and Divine guidance in the difficult and far-reaching decisions that he must make. We pledge to him our loyal support in the execution of the oath he will take… to faithfully execute the office of President of the United States and to the best of his ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.
