Rep. Kelly Statement on Passing of Rev. Billy Graham

WASHINGTON — U.S. Representative Mike Kelly (R-PA) issued the following statement today in tribute to the late Rev. Billy Graham, who died this morning at the age of 99.

“Today I join millions of fellow Christians and people of all faiths worldwide in mourning the passing of the Rev. Billy Graham, yet also in celebrating his joyous entry into the kingdom of Heaven. Through his decades of ministry in service to the Gospel, minds were opened, souls were saved, and hearts were transformed. The good news of his impassioned crusades crossed oceans and transcended continents, while intimately affecting each person who heard them. Whether preaching to stadiums, counseling world leaders, or reaching the faithful through his books and TV and radio sermons, through Rev. Graham, God's message of love, hope, and redemption was powerfully spread in a way that made His world better. May we all be grateful for Rev. Graham's lifetime of leadership and service and let his example inspire us always.”
