|... Today not only the church, but also the political powers of the world are |
frequently meeting, leaving their differences aside, to tackle common
problems, and find ways and means for the achievement and preservation of
world peace. The church should not overlook this great task because she is the
origin of peace and fraternity. ...
... For strength can be achieved through unity, and success is the fruit of
co-operation. There is no doubt that work done through co-operative spirit
shall meet with success.
"... That if two of you shall agree on earth
as touching anything that they shall ask, it
shall be done for them of my father which is
in heaven." (Matt. 18:19) ...
... the world today is facing a great dilemma: the catastrophical weapons which
are the result of human ingenuity, menace the world to the point of
annihilation, and the human race is more than ever in need of the prayers and
support of the Church. ...
