In this 2000 photo, Argentina's Archbishop Jorge Mario Bergoglio speaks during a Mass in the 31 slum in honor of slain priest Carlos Mugica, whose picture stands on the altar, the day his remains were taken to the Villa 31 slum in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Mugica was born in Buenos Aires in 1930 and worked with the needy, advocating liberation theology in Buenos Aires' slums. He was assassinated in 1974, two years before Argentina's dictatorship, by the Argentine Anti-Communist Alliance, a right-wing death squad, when he had just finished celebrating Mass in Buenos Aires. Every significant slum in Buenos Aires has a church, thanks in part to Bergoglio, who was elected pope on Wednesday. (AP Photo)
PHILADELPHIA: As Memorial Day has evolved since the Civil War, our nation celebrates it to remember and honor those who died while serving in the Armed Forces. At the national level, the service itself is more important than the cause. It doesn’t matter if the sacrifice was made during World Wars I and II, in Korea and Vietnam, or in Iraq and Afghanistan. Whenever and wherever those deaths occurred, they offer a unifying theme of the spirit: Honor those whose service cost their lives.
