English The Church Deserves Better Treatment

The Cardinal said that in Czech society there was a tendency to isolate and marginalize the role of the Catholic Church and make the faith a private and personal matter only.

(UTC, 15.05.2002) The Czech Cardinal Miloslav Vlk has complained about alleged efforts to marginalize the role of the Catholic Church in society.

In an in-depth interview conducted on the eve of his seventieth birthday, the Cardinal said that in Czech society there was a tendency to isolate and marginalize the role of the Catholic Church and make the faith a private and personal matter.

The trend in Europe is the exact opposite but we are sadly lagging behind, Cardinal Vlk noted, attributing this fact to more than four decades of communism. The Cardinal said that despite this he was optimistic about the future, because since the fall of communism people had gradually re-embraced spiritual values.
