WHEN the practice of Catho
licism is all but illegal, as in Czechosovakia today, fathers and mothers have an even greater responsibility to keep the Faith alive in the home.
By such means will it continue to live despite all attempts to stamp it out.
This point emerges from an encyclical letter sent by the Holy Father last Sunday to the Archbishops, Bishops and people of Czechoslovakia "at peace and in communion with the Holy See."
The Pope recalled the two saints who brought the Faith to Czechoslovakia and all those who have suffered for it since, in exhorting priests to stand firm in face of the threat of torture, imprisonment and death.
