On January 28, 1999, The Baltimore Sun published an article on the Papal declarations made during the Pope's visit to St. Louis. Pope John Paul II called for a "new evangelism" in the new millennium, which valorizes the rights and dignity of the human person. With reference to the United States, the Pope urged an end to racism, the death penalty, and advocated for the nation's Roman Catholics to be "unconditionally pro-life."
