ROME, July IS. Pope Leo has addressed
a letter to the vicar general, in
the course of which he says the sorrowful
events in China, besides filling
his soul with sadness on account of
the spilling of so much Christian blood,
inspires him with the deepest fear as
to the situation of the apostolic vicars
and the dangers to which Christians
and missionaries are exposed in serious
trials, as well as sacrifice of lives.
His Holiness, therefore, asks that all
communicants pray that God Inspire
thoughts of concord and peace and
that he will end destruction and massacre.
