" His Holiness our Sovereign Pontiff,
i Iope Benedict XV, In deep affliction
i at the sight- of war which destroys
I thousands of young lives, brings mis
'. ry.to- families and cities, and rushes
! flourishing nations to the brlnfe of
; min, yet bearing in mind that ' Al-
mighty God, whose ' prerogative It is
' to heal by chastisement and through
j pardon, to preserv e, is moved by tha
I pra.yera which spring " from contrite
and humble hearts, desires 'ardently
that above the clang of arms may be
heard tha voice of, faith, hope and
charity, alone capable; of welding to-
e-ether the hearts of men in one mind
E-nd one spirit. Therefore, while He
exhorts the clergy and the faithful of
thai whole world to work of morti
fication and. piety; in" expiation for the
, rine by which we have called down
upon, ourselves . the Just wrath of

Dismayed by the horrors of a war
which is. bringing ruin to peoples and
nations, we turn, O Jesus, to . Thy
most loving Heart as to our last hope.
O God of i Mercy, with . tears we in
voke Thee to end this fearful scourge;
O King Qf Peace, we humbly implore
the peace for which we long: From
Thy Sacred Heart Thou didst shed
forth over the world divine Charity; '
so that discord might end and . love
alone might, reign among men. Dur
ing Thy life on earth , Thy Heart beat
with; tender compassion for., the sor
rows of men; in this hour made ter
rible with burning! hate, with.. blood
shed and with- salughter, once more
may Thy divine Heart be moved to
pity. Pity the countless mothers in
anguish tor the fate , of their sons;
pity the numberless families' now be
reaved of their fathers; pity Europe
over which ; broods such havoc and
disaster.; i SDo Thou inspire rulers and
peoples , with; counsels of meekness, do
Thou heal the discords that tear the
nations asunder; Thous who didst
shed Thy Precious Blood that they
might live as brothers, bring men to
gether once more in loving harmony.
And as once before to tha cry of the
Apostle Peter j Save us. Lord, we per
ish. Thou didst answer with words of
mercy and didst still the raging waves,
so now deign to hear our trustful
prayer, and give back to the world
peace and tranquility. ' ,-
And do thou, O most, holy .Virgin,
as in .other times of sore distress, be
now pur help, our protection and our
safeguard. Amen. . . v
