Bishop Urges
Cuba to Fight
HAVANA, Jan. 14 (AP).
Archbishop Enrique Perez Ser
rantes of Santiago has Issued
* new pastoral letter urging
all Christians in Cuba to rally
for a new struggle against
The Roman Catholic prelate’s
appeal was directed at Chris
tians outside his own church.
Although Cuba Is predominant
ly Catholic, church attendance
is traditionally low among the
peasantry who now provide
Prime Minister Fidel Castro’s
largest internal support.
The letter was drafted on
the eve of Epiphany— January
6—but copies reached Havana
only today. Those who brought
it said it probably had been
read in the churches of Oriente
Province already, although not
by the aging and ailing arch
bishop in person.
Archbishop Perez Serrantes,
77, has repeatedly challenged
the Cuban government’s at
tacks on the Catholic chuch.
His letter appeared to answer
the Castro challenge of “with
our revolution or against it”
by declaring: “with Christ or
against Christ.”
"We write so many pasto
rals,” the outspoken prelate
said, “because it is the only
vehicle of publicity left to us
now that the press, radio and
television constitute a luxury
exclusively reserved for those
who fight us.”
“It is certain that we fight
communism,” he wrote. "If it
ever existed for us. at this
time of life the hour of fear
has passed.”
He Insisted that his struggle
against communism in Cuba
has no foreign support and is
“not in the spirit of counter
revolutionaries nor partisans.”
“We fight because we know
that today there exist in the
world only two fronts face to
face,” the lettter said. "One is
composed of those who are dis
posed to give their lives for
Christ . . . the other of those
who consciously or uncon
sciously are trying to eliminate
God and erase him from human
