Dear Monsignor Galan:

Many of us have been dismayed to learn of the arrest of Adolfo Perez Esquivel earlier this month. He is highly regarded here as a man of integrity, apostolic zeal, and commitment to the works of justice and peace. As you confront the difficult situation of his detention, please be assured of our concern, fraternal solidarity, and willingness to help in any way we can.

With every good wish, I remain

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Thomas C. Kelly, O.P.
General Secretary
