Vovk, Anton. Pridiga 1. septembra 1957. Rokopis.
The sermon is an ideal example of Anton Vovk's theological views, which included preservation of the honour of the Catholic Church and its struggle for human liberty and dignity. It served as a source of encouragement for the faithful. The message was cloaked in rhetoric that did not openly attacking the ruling regime. But the fact that it was very clear about the Christian worldview, which was in conflict with the worldview imposed by the regime made the sermon a very influential and important milestone in relations between Bishop Vovk and the state, showing that he was not deterred from propagating the Christian truth even after an extremely violent attack – the burning in 1952. Document is located in the Anton Vovk Collection and it is available for research purposes.
