Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

While driving through Morristown, New Jersey, you might consider visiting Saint Margaret Church, located on 6 Sussex Avenue. The Catholic Church was built in 1968 with beautiful stained glass windows. Remarkably, an awe-inspiring window of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is on the right side as your enter from the front. The prominent stained glass window is certainly notable!


The following poem is written in honor of Dr. King and his legacy of striving for social justice and peace:


Tribute to a King


Freedom fighter in words of flaming love

Passionate zeal of soul through humbling marches and dreams

Unlocking the gateway to civil liberty

Announcing a legacy of social equality amid hands of joy and unity

Proclaiming peace and harmony on behalf of posterity

Messenger of the Lord into footsteps of Calvary—


By no means forgotten—


Resurrected in spirit and seated among the elect

Hero and saint of God’s heavenly kingdom

Champion of Christianity and Martyr of the 20th Century—

The great Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
