Cardinal Heenan Raps Persecution

“Christians should perhaps learn from their Jewish brethren never to allow those living in freedom to forget the victims of persecution.” Cardinal John Heenan declared yesterday in a sermon at Westminster Cathedral. With exiled Hungarian Cardinal Mindszenty at his side, Cardinal Heenan said: “We who live in liberty must not rest while men and women of any religion are persecuted. If world communism is earnest about spreading peace let it cease from persecution.”
