Description: At age 27 Franz considered entering a Catholic monastery as a lay brother, but was advised against it by bis parish priest who thought Franz should take over the family farm and care for his mother. Bishop Johannes Gfllner, who opposed the Nazis for more than two decades, wrote a pastoral letter on true and false nationalism in which he stated: "Nazism is spiritually sick with materialistic racial delusions, un-Christian nationalism, a nationalistic view of religion, with what is quite simply sham Christianity." "What Catholic dares to declare that the predatory raids which Germany has already made, and is still carrying on in several countries, are a righteous and holy war?" He spoke with local priests and bishops who, though no supporters of the Nazis, suggested that he "go along to get along"-don't endanger his family, keep his head down.
