ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the political debate about merits and drawbacks of an unusual method of fighting Communism in France. It involves the continuation of the missionary activity of the so-called worker-priests who try to re-christianize the largely Communist-dominated working-class people of French industrial cities. Since France is a Catholic country, this movement is creating an agitation in public opinion. The defense of the worker-priests in last few years comes from those Frenchmen who believe that the French social system has become subject to Communism internal siege largely because its leaders have been and are more unwilling than unable to face adjustment to modern conditions.
