Venerable Mindszenty

Mindzenty

I find it very interesting that just a week ago, I visited the tomb of the late Jozsef Mindszenty, who was declared Venerable today by His Holiness Pope Francis, a step towards Beatification.  Cardinal Mindszenty suffered much for the freedom of the Hungarian people from fascism, Nazism, and communism.   I am also reminded of my first visit to Hungary shortly after the fall of communism.  The tour guide said: “We were dreaming of freedom, but when freedom came we did not know what to do with it.”
