To Pastor Fritz Pfafflin
Dear Pastor Pfafflin, 5 July 1935
Understandable though your question is, I find it difficult to answer by letter and in a few words.
Whatever future developments may bring, I think that despite everything it is not necessary at present for you to hang your cassock on the nail.
So long as there is a parish for you to look after, you have work enough to do.
Christianity as bequeathed to us by our fathers will be a necessity for a long time to come.
What is worrying you does not conflict with Christianity but has to do with experiences which a Christian-minded person, who takes his religion seriously, must go through provided he has the necessary vocation.
