The Albert Hall was packed on Tuesday night for a rally organised by the International Council for Christian Leadership and the Review of World Affairs, to stress the need in Britain of a widespread spiritual awakening.
A C.H. reporter present observed that what was lacking at the meeting was a realisation that unless the ordinary mass of people were attracted. no amount of middle and upper class revival would make the least difference to the general apathy towards Christ. Only a few genuine working-class people were present. The working-class was hardly mentioned as such. and one got the impression that the organisers of the meeting lacked a true realisation of the problems that confront the country.
In presenting the situation as be saw it now, Mr. Kenneth de Courcy gave us Catholics nothing new. What he had to say on Tuesday evening we have been saying as Catholics for the past 50 years. All of us have yet to act.
