ELN Documents: Letter to Cardinal Karl Lehmann
Translated from German
President of the
German Conference of Bishops
We wish to express our thanks to you for your willingness in 1996 to support the peace initiative backed by Minister of State Bernd Schmidbauer, an initiative which, unfortunately, was halted.
Today, a new opportunity has arisen to continue this process and we would like, therefore, to ask you to support us once more, just as you did then as president of the episcopate.
We thank you in advance for your consideration of this request, and remain
ELN CENTRAL COMMAND
