Bishop Edward Burns of the Catholic Diocese of Dallas is asking North Texans to Be Golden. In his first major initiative as Bishop, Burns launched his Be Golden Campaign.

Surrounded by leaders of all faiths, he asked North Texans to come together in support of immigrants. To be thoughtful, respectful and compassionate just as Jesus asked his followers to do in His name.

"If we want security, let us give security. If we want life. Let us give life. If we want opportunities, let us provide opportunities. The yardstick we use for others will be the yardstick time will use for us," Bishop Burns said.

Bishop Burns says we are surrounded by immigrant families who live in fear. The Be Golden Campaign will officially launch Monday night when the entire Dallas Skyline will light up in Gold.

Watch this translated in Spanish:

Es el famoso pasaje del libro de Mateo. "Haz a los demás lo que quieras que te hagan a ti".

La regla de oro.

Hoy el Obispo Burns de la Diócesis Católica de Dallas les está pidiendo a todos en esta comunidad que sean Dorados.

En su primera gran iniciativa como obispo, hoy Burns lanzó su campaña Be Golden.

Rodeado de líderes de todas las religiones, pidió a los residentes de Dallas que se unieran en apoyo de los inmigrantes.

Ser respetuoso y compasivo tal como Jesús les pidió a sus seguidores que lo hicieran en Su nombre.

"Tenemos que recordar la regla de oro y tratar a los de mas como queremos que nos traten."

El Obispo Burns dice que estamos rodeados de familias inmigrantes que viven con miedo. Ninos que tienen miedo de perder ha sus padres y a los Sonadores con miedo de ser deportados.

La Campaña Be Golden se lanzará oficialmente el lunes por la noche cuando todo el Dallas Skyline se iluminara en oro.
