Papal envoy calls for re-evangelization at 600th anniversary of Lithuanian cathedral
Catholic World News - May 06, 2013
Pope Francis named Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz of Krakow as his special envoy to the six hundredth anniversary of the dedication of the cathedral basilica in Kaunas, Lithuania’s second-largest city. The anniversary was commemorated on May 5.
Cardinal Dziwisz paid tribute to the resistance shown by many Lithuanian Christians to the “totalitarian, anti-religious, and inhuman system” of Communism. Calling for re-evangelization, he added, “Back then Communism, today secularism.”
