TROUBLED TIMES

"Times of tribulation often teach us more true and profound lessons than times of ease, as pain is often a more effective master than facile success. With terror will come understanding, and we hope to God that the whole human race, as well as each individual nation, will emerge more experienced and more mature from the painful and bloody school of today; that it will be able with clear eyes to distinguish truth from deceptive appearances; that it will open its ears and attend to the voice of reason, pleasing or not, and will close them to the hollow rhetoric of error; that all men will acknowledge reality and take seriously the practice of right and justice, not only when calling for their own demands to be met but also when considering the rightful claims of others." Pope Pius XII, 1940 amidst World War II
