"THE POPE OF WHITEHALL" Mgr. Griffin's Letter

Mgr. Griffin, Archbishop of Westminster, writes to THE CATHOLIC _HERALD as follows; SIR,—I was very surprised to Sec in your last issue a reproduction of the cartoon to which public reference was made in the House of Commons. Such additional publicity only serves to aggravate an already unfortunate incident.

All right-minded Catholics must consider the cartoon an offensive piece of work, a disgrace to the Catholic name, and an insult to the Holy Father. Such methods of propaganda are a discredit to the Catholic cause and are to be highly deprecated.

I need hardly say that those responsible for its production acted without any reference to authority. 4, BERNARD,

Archbishop of Westminster.

ITEE CATHOLIC HERALD'S part was confiwsd to publishing the leaflet " fd . the information and interest " of 'ceders, together with some criticism dl those M.P.s who, to. judge from their speeches. were more concerned about the offence it might give to Mr. Buts

lee than to the Holy See. Our readers, knowing our feelings about the Papacy. especially at the present lime, will realise how extremely sorry we are to have been accidentally the disseminators of any publicity that is viewed as being offensive to the Holy Father. Etanott,
