Pope Benedict XV on World War I (full text)
From 1914: on the upcoming war ‘that destroyed the world of liberty’

The new Pope has taken the name last taken by the preconciliar pontiff whose advice, had it been heeded by the world, would have avoided the bloodbath of World War I, the triumph of “democracy” under the tank treads of Woodrow Wilson’s armies, and the final toppling of altar and throne in Europe.
- Christopher Ferrara
