Following the call in last week's CATHOLIC HERALD for action now, to save Archbishop Beran, reports show that Catholic societies and organisations all over the country have taken or are about to take action in the matter.
St. Joseph's. Wembley, and Our Lady and St. Thomas of Canterbury, Harrow, have arranged a joint protest meeting to take place at Wembley Town Hall on Sunday, filly 24. Several prominent speakers will attend.
St. Augustine's, Leeds, branch of the Sword of the Spirit have sent the following telegrams to the Prime Minister of Czechoslovakia and Archbishop Reran:
PRIME MINISTER PRAGUE. "Herod. Nero, Diocletian failed. So will persecutors of Stepinac and Mindszenty. Are you adding your name to theirs?"
ARCHBISHOP RERAN. "Encouragement and prayers. Confident the Gates of Hell shall not prevail."
St. Marie's, Widnes, Lanes, branch of the Catholic Young Men's Society are organising a postcard protest on behalf of the Archbishop.
Mr. J. Moran, an official of St. Marie's C.Y.M.S., told our reporter that about 500 postcards will be sent to local Members of Parliament and members of the Cabinet. Mr. Moran hoped that other C.Y.M.S. branches will take similar action.
