(Prague) Novinky , the most important Internet portal of the Czech Republic reported yesterday on an article by Cardinal Dominik Duka, Archbishop of Prague and Primate of Bohemia, on what he had written after the assassination of the French priest, Abbé Jacques Hamel. Abbé Hamel had his throat cut on July 26, while celebrating Holy Mass in the church Saint Etienne du Rouvray in Rouen. The priest was then beheaded. The two murderers were shot dead by police. The Islamic State (IS) took credit for the act. Cardinal Duka sent his response to the renowned Catholic weekly Katolický Týdeník. They, however, refused to publish the article. The cardinal then published it on his Facebook page.
