AMERICAN EDITION REVISED AND ENLARGED
mX<u."For them (the peoples of the SovietUnion) We cherish the warmest paternalaffection. We are well aware that not a fewof them groan beneath the yoke imposedon them by men who in very large part arestrangers to the real interests of the country.We recognise that many others were deceivedby fallacious hopes. We blame only thesystem with its authors and abettors who considered Russia the best prepared field for experimenting with a plan elaborated years ago,and who from there continue to spread itfrom one end of the world to the other."(Encyclical Letter of Pius XI,
on Atheistic Communism.)
