December R7, 1 50 THE OBSERVER EDITION OF 'OUR' SUNDAY !VISITOR ' NeWs Section--Pag IlK 'Mirabile Illud' Vatican translation "Mirabile Illud," addressed by His Holiness Pope Plus XI[ to all the Bishops of the world. It urges a renewed crusade of pray- ers for peace, particularly on the Feast of the Immaculate Concep- tion and during the Church's cus- tomary novena in preparation for Christmas. City--Following is a of the Encyclical i that--having called for public prayers--you invite the flock en- trusted to you to obtain from God peace and concord among peoples, i so that under the auspices of relig- ion there may be a sacred struggle, as it were, to offset the abominable strife which threatens the whole human family with so many dan- : gers. The marvellous spectacle of Certainly you know that at mid-_ brotherly concord, offered during the Holy Year by the numberless night preceding the Feast of the groups of pilgrims, flocking to Immaculate Conception of the Vir- Rome in pious pilgrimage from al- gin Mary, we will celebrate the most every nation, seems to Us to possess a warning voice and to constitute before the world a sol- emn testimony that the. peoples of the world do not want war, nor discord nor hatred, but ardently desire peace, a union of minds and that Christian love which alone is the. source of a more prosperous and happy age. It is Our ardent wish that all should at last hear that warning, as with anxious mind We behold peoples engaged in a fearful pre- paration for war while in certain places a horrible fury of slaughter is already reaping its harvest of courageous, youthful lives. Who does not see how th, bloody struggles bring ruin, mas- sacres, and all sorts of miseries? The human mind---destined for other things--has discovered and introduced nowadays instruments of war of such power as to raise horror in the souls of all honest persons; above all, because they hit not only the armies but often wipe out private citizens, children, women, old people, the sick, and with them the sacred buildings and the most outstanding montiments of art. Who is not horrified by the thought that new cemeteries wil be added to the many of the recent conflict and that new smoking ruins of towns and cities will accu- mulate more sad ruins ? Who finally does not tremble at thought that destruction of new riches, the inevitable conse- quence of war, could further ag- gravate the economic crisis from Eucharistic Sacrifice and through the radio We will make Our im- ploring voice reach all listeners. We desire that on that holy night especially, all faithful, united with I the Vicar of Christ, should invoke from the Father of Mercies through the intercession of the Virgin Mother of God, preserved from every strain of original sin, that at long last, with hatreds ended and all differences justly and equitably settled, the light of a real and genuine peace may ra- diate to all nations and peoples. We further desire that with the same spiritual ardor and for this: same cause prayers be repeatedly offered during the novena of sup-: plication customarily held in pre- paration for the solemn Feast of the Birth of Christ to beseech the Divine Child that the peace pro- claimed to men of good will by angelic choirs above His sacred crib may shine forth throughout the world and become firmly established everywhere. We must not forget to pray ar- dently to the new-born Redeemer and His Divine Mother, that the Catholic religion, the securest foundation of human and civil life, may enjoy due freedom in all na- tions and that those who "suffer persecution for justice," and who are in jail for having strenuously defended the sacrosanct rights of the Church, or have been torn away from their Sees, and also those who live in misery awv~y from their fatherland and family or are still prisoners, may obtain heavenly comfort and finally reach the oh- Medalist Aloysius L.
