He added : "We had to learn our lesson the hard way. It has taken two devas- tating wars to make us learn a lesson that Popes have been trying to teach us now for almost 25 years; not only Plus XI[, but his two predecessors, Benedict XV and Plus XI. "Shortly after the end of the last war, we Americans declared to Europe and the rest of the world: 'From now on we're going to live our own life; what you do among yourselves is none of our concern.' ;' Father Fahey pointed out, how- ever, that Benedict XV had a dif- ferent idea of what we and the rest of the world ought to do. "Benedict XV looked out upon the world with the eyes of Christ, and saw the nations not as isolat- ed units, but rather as members of a great family of nations under God," said Father Fahey. He con- tinued: "We have now, through the war, :finally come to realize that the Holy Father was right. Whether we like it or not we are bound up with the rest of the worht. If vio- lence breaks out anywhere, it will have its effect on us. "Maintaining the peace involves all of us. The task is too huge; the factors are too complex for any one nation or small group of na- tions to do alone." Bishop Confirms 39 At Somonauk Somonauk.--His Excellency, the Most Rev. John J.
