Segment 4 – Don’t Slander St. Junípero Serra: California lawmakers sully the good name of a Catholic saint

“California lawmakers have passed legislation to replace a statue of St. Junípero Serra at the Capitol in Sacramento with a new monument honoring the state’s native peoples. The Serra statue has been in storage since it was torn down by protesters in July 2020. A humble 18th-century Franciscan priest, Serra would surely approve of a new monument honoring the indigenous Californians he spent his life serving. Unfortunately, the legislature has gone further, slandering his name and pushing a false narrative about the mission period in California.” Archbishop Cordileone explains.

Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone is the Archbishop of San Francisco. He previously served as Bishop of Oakland, California and Auxiliary Bishop of San Diego. He serves as the Chairman of the USCCB Committee on Laity, Marriage, Family, Life and Youth.
