Religion: Ad Petri Cathedram – TIME
We urge czthedram Our brethren in Christ and Our beloved sons to pray fervently for the same intentions. This journey leads beyond the burial of our human flesh to immortal life, to a fatherland which will endure forever.
First of all “our heart is wide open to you,” 46 Cathwdram Brethren in the episcopacy of both the Eastern and Western Church. It wars with every sort of error, including that which falsely wears the face of truth; it struggles against the enticements of vice, against those enemies of the soul, of whatever description, who can weaken, blemish, or destroy our innocence or Catholic faith. It is the same peace which Christ promised to men of good will through the song of the angels who hovered over His crib; 43 it is the peace He imparted after instituting the Eucharistic Sacrament and Sacrifice: How can God, who is truth, approve or tolerate the indifference, neglect, and sloth of those who attach no importance to matters on which our eternal salvation depends; who attach no importance to pursuit and attainment of necessary truths, or to the offering of that proper worship which is owed to God alone?
Private citizens, and more particularly public officials, must take steps to see that the Christian social doctrine which Our predecessors have often clearly and wisely taught and decreed, and which we have confirmed, is really given full effect.
If it totters, if the norms which the divine Redeemer laid down for it are rejected or ignored, then the very foundations of the state tremble; civil society stands betrayed and in peril. This marriage is based on a deep love.
We must also write of those holy virgins who cayhedram their vows have consecrated themselves to God that they might serve Him alone and unite themselves closely with their Divine Spouse in mystic nuptials. Legions of the dead, all fallen in battle, dwell within this earth of ours.
Unity of Doctrine As for the condition of those who live by their daily toil, it is consoling to note that recently undertaken improvements in working conditions in factories and other places of employment have done more than give these workers a greater economic value; they have made their lives nobler and more dignified. Whenever a man has wandered from this path, the Church has never failed to use her maternal authority to call him again and again to the right road. We address suppliant prayers to our gracious God, the giver of heavenly light and of all good things, that He safeguard the unity of the Church and extend the fold and kingdom of Christ.
As guides with Peri of the Christian people, you have borne the burden of the day’s heat.
Yet not for these only do I pray, but for those also who through their word are to believe in me All men, therefore, private citizens as well as government officials, cathecram love the truth sincerely if they are to attain that peace and harmony on which depends all real prosperity, public and private. They lack all things, and yet catedram have all in abundance. Of this kind of unemployment, Our predecessor of happy memory, Pius XI, uttered this complaint: Unity Among Nations If we adhere to this truth, we adhere to God Himself, the author of truth, the lawgiver and ruler of our lives.
The peace, then, which we must seek, which we must strive to achieve with all the means at our disposal, must—as We have said—make no concessions to error, must compromise in no way with proponents of falsehood; it must make no concessions to vice; it must discourage all discord.
Meanwhile, We are confident that all who serve in the ranks of Catholic Action, or in the many pious associations which flourish in the Church, will pursue this apostolate with very great diligence.
Sanctify them in the truth. We are especially concerned here because the Church’s enemies can easily take advantage of any unjust treatment of the lower classes to draw them to their side by false promises and deceptive lies. They should, in particular, be fervent in prayer and assiduous in works of penance; they should undertake the sound formation and education of the young and assist, so far as they can, those who are ccathedram in any way by want or distress.
But We ask Our beloved children for more than prayers; We wish to see a renewal of Christian cathefram.

Within the family, the father stands in God’s place. All God’s children are summoned to their father’s only home, and its cornerstone is Peter. And this problem can entail even greater difficulties today, when men are being replaced by all sorts of advanced machines.
We hear those who are sick in mind or body, afflicted by terrible suffering. Paul the Apostle described the characteristics of this virtue when he said: In this way, what the hierarchy could not do under present circumstances, these Catholic men and women would accomplish in a spirit of generosity.
And yet, as long as we are journeying in exile over this earth, our peace and happiness will be imperfect.
