The Pope made a doubleappeal for renewed prayers to

prevent war last Saturday when he addressed the Palatine Guard and later held an audience for 30,000 pilgrims in St, Peter's.

His Holiness told the Palatine Guard, which was celebrating the centenary of its foundation: "We exhort you to intensify your prayers, above all in this grave hour, so that God may keep the scourge of war far from Rome and from all the world," After reviewing his Guardsmen in the Belvedere Courtyard. the Pope crossed into the Basilica for the mass audience. He urged his hearers to pray so that all may be inspired to true brotherhood and peace."
