“Ever since the arrest of Mgr. Stepinac I have considered it my sacred duty to tell all men of good will that all the accusations brought against him are either pure falsifications or gross distortions and malicious misrepresentations of the facts. Close connections with Yugoslavia for over a quarter of a century certainly give me the right and the competence to do so. For more than five years I stayed in that country-two years and a half of them in Zagreb where I had the opportunity of speaking with Mgr. Stepinac once a week at least and thus becoming fully acquainted with his personality and his activity, his views and his opinions.”
