Cardinal Michael von Faulhaber of Bavaria issues a pastoral letter, read in churches throughout Bavaria, instructing Catholics to support cooperation between Church and State in the struggle against communism.

Cardinal Michael von Faulhaber writes:

"The Führer and Chancellor of the Reich, Adolf Hitler, has sighted the advance of Bolshevism from afar and his thoughts and aspirations aim at averting the horrible danger from our German people and the entire Occident.

The German bishops consider it their duty to support the head of the German Reich by all those means which the Church has at its disposal."

Faulhaber insists that defending against Bolshevism is a religious duty and, to achieve this, it is necessary for the Church to muster all its moral and spiritual assets "to strengthen confidence in the Führer."
