Following upon Dr Arnold Jago's letter (July AD2000), readers may be interested to know that the Confraternity of the Holy Name of Jesus has kept in touch with Mr Andre van der Linden since his stand for Jesus was first published in the Melbourne Sunday Herald Sun on 25 April this year.

The Confraternity's first action was to send him a letter of support together with a cheque for $100.00 to help defray some of his legal expenses, as he had just acquired the services of (as he put it) a Christian lawyer.

Our next action was to send two copies of the Litany of the Holy Name of Jesus, together with two Membership Badges of the Confraternity for himself and his wife.

Both by phone and in a letter to me, he expressed his appreciation for our prayers, support and actions and asked that we continue to pray for him and what he is doing and support his action by telling people what the name of Jesus means to us and why we object to its blasphemous usage.

Mr van der Linden's latest information is that the ABA has been in touch with Channel Seven and are awaiting its reply before taking any further action. He told me that it depends on this outcome as to what further action, if any, he will then take.

Meanwhile, if any reader wishes to help defray Mr van der Linden's expenses, please post a cheque or money order, made out to The Confraternity of the Holy Name of Jesus, c/- Barry O'Brien, 1 Murtoa St, Dallas 3047. Victoria. Your donation, for which you will promptly receive a receipt, will immediately be forwarded on to him.
