The Pope's Words

Another glaring and dangerous instance of press irresponsibility took place this week.

In a London evening newspaper it was prominently stated that the Pope in receiving the new Belgian Ambassador to the Holy See, M. de l'EscaiLle, had said: "We feel sure that Belgium will continue to fight against that Power which in the paSt abused by force and menaced the very life of your country, and which now seeks to penetrate everywhere, menacing everyone."

The words used by the Holy Father were:

" We feel sure that Belgium will always remain worthy of its past glory, a testimony to which is to be found in her resistance to the abuses of force, at the risk of her own existence, and we feel sure that she will continue her fight against all the forces which attempt to penetrate everywhere."
