Redemptorists in Vietnam under pressure from government

From Redemptorist Superior General:

To the Provincial of the Province of Vietnam:
"We admire the commitment of the Province of Vietnam, and your own personal commitment, to support all efforts for justice and peace, especially for those in Vietnam who suffer from violence, from injustice, and from the efforts of those in the communist regime who do abuse or ignore human rights. We have read the articles published about the recent attacks on the Redemptorist house in Hanoi. We pray that true justice will prevail and that the rights of all confreres and parishioners will be fully respected.
-Michael Brehl, C.Ss.R.
Superior General
