Bishop Rožman Laid to Rest in His Homeland

Ljubljana, 13 April - Bishop Gregorij Rožman was buried in the Ljubljana cathedral on Saturday after his remains were earlier this week repatriated from the US, where he died in exile in 1959. Archbishop of Ljubljana Anton Stres, who conducted the memorial service for his predecessor, said being buried in one's homeland was one's natural right.
