We hereby appeal to the Czech nation to follow its heroic preacher of truth especially in these hard times of serious heresies, invasion of neopaganism and moral devastation. Jesus, through the holy martyr John, speaks again to all Catholics, Christians and honest Czech citizens: “The truth shall make you free.” (Jn 8:32) “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life.” (Jn 14:6) Today Jesus calls on all honest Czech people: Follow Me just as your Czech priest and martyr, Saint John, followed Me.
