Professor Foerster writes as a man who believes that Germany

should have a Christian mission as Europe's Central power; hut this power has for years been dangerous because it was selfish and unscrupulous. How can we meet the situation? Our defence needs to be strong, especially in the air; but not less strong should be our diplomacy. We should rid ourselves of every unnecessary enemysuch, for example, as the Jews make for us, through Palestine, in the Moslem world, or the French. through supporting Red Spain, make in Italy. We need to make 16th Century Nobleman, by M. G. Benziger (Burns, Oates and Washbourne, 3s. 6d.). St. Francis Xavier's exciting life told to children. Adventure that is true means everything to the child. This saint is a child's idea of a hero.

Modern Mystic, by an Irish Carmelite (Burns, Oates and Washbourne, 5s.), being the biography of Mother Mary Teresa of the Angels of the Carmelite Order. Spirituality through commonsense methods seems to have been Mother Mary Teresa's theory. the most of every possible friend, such as Poland, Italy, Turkey.

But above all we should remember that Professor Foerster is not alone in Germany. There are still Christians there. Could not England combine with these in concerted prayer, and open (though tactful) sym pathy? Through St. Boniface, England converted Germany in the first place; now she has the not less noble vocation of justifying her in the Faith, and in its works of peace.
