That was then and this is....

Decades of repression fail to stifle the Church in Belarus, archbishop says

What a difference between now and the time of Russian domination before the breakup of the U.S.S.R. in what were then called satellite countries! This CNS story shows the situation now seems far better in some respects, but certainly not in all.

Archbishop Tadeusz Kondrusiewicz of Pinsk, Belarus, told a Catholic high school audience March 13 how he "grew up in the Soviet Union in a time of persecution" and that "now there is another type of persecution."

If Catholics live lives that are predicated on Jesus Christ, they can avoid falling prey to these types of persecution, he told the crowd of 100 that filled the school library. "Our faith must be a light in our daily life."
