VATICAN RADIO SPEAKS OUT
From Our German Correspondent Listeners-in to the Vatican City shortwave station have noticed a remarkable change in the German programmes which are sent out every Friday at 8 p.m.
The bulk of the time is now given to reports about the persecution of the Church in Russia, Mexico, Spain and Germany. Very outspoken comments deal with German neo-paganism, measures of the Nazi secret police, the oppression of Catholic youth, the arrests of priests and so on.
Important documents which cannot be published or circulated inside the Third Reich are read, for instance the letter of sympathy addressed by the Catholic youth associations of nine countries to the Catholic youth of Germany, a very energetic sermon which has been recently preached by Count von Galen, Bishop of Waster, and articles of the Osservatore Romano dealing with German affairs.
