Following in the footsteps of his predecessor, Pope Plus XI, the present Pope has steadily proclaimed his desire to bring peace on earth without political interference. Here are his addresses. They make good reading and present Pope XII as a man without country ties, and internationally minded servant of God who regards all races as brothers, and feels a responsibility for their welfare. Weather disturbances have often made it impossible to follow these eagerly awaited talks by radio, so in published form, these speeches are unique, and should be of interest not only to Roman Catholics, but Christian admirers throughout the world. With a biography of Pope XII by Charles Rankin.
