Mindszenty the School – A visit never to be forgotten

February 26, 2012
The OBSERVER

"So go on and be confident," were his final words. His very presence that day back on May 23, 1974 was truly inspirational to all the people who were there. He told those in attendance, "I'm grateful for this warm reception, to me, to my mother's person, and I don't need to tell you how I've longed a long time to come and see you." It was a short visit, but never to be forgotten by those who were present. "We saw him, we heard him, we touched him, we love him. Our memory of him will survive the rest of our lives." These were the sentiments of the young men and women at Cardinal Mindszenty High School as expressed on the opening pages of their 1975 yearbook. Young and old knew the significance of this man and the honor bestowed by his visit. This man was none other than Cardinal Mindszenty of Hungary.
