some personal views for Catholic readers
He was my father's Bishop and confirmed him.
Thank you for posting this video, it has a beautiful solemnity to it. I didn't know anyhting about the Blessed Aloysius Stepinac before, but this has inspired me to read more about his life, his pastorship and his very suspcious poisoning.I've found this blog very enlightening since I started following it!
Dear Father RayThere is a post about the Pope's visit to Croatia on the Archbishop Cranmer blog. I would be interested to know what you make of the allegations made against Archbishop Stepinac with reference to his conduct during World War II.

As a Croat, I am very happy that his case is used to teach people about martyrdom in recent history and what it means to be faithful. He suffered under a brutal regime that supposedly worked for the good of the people. We are still recovering from its influence. Beautiful video, thank you for the link.
