Gut of the Far East, to which we laboriously carry Christian messages, long ago came the word: Never- yet did hatted conquer hatred; Always 'tis by love that hatred dies. And still we hate, forgetting that at the very heart of life lies (he-truth that hatred, even hatred of evil, yields only'weakness, slilj more hatred, dejtruf- livc forces of every kind, while love has proved again an'd again its constructive power to build up in its own image. No Hymn of Hate is born in the rhiads of those who battle for a great ideal. Their minds are top full of the beauty of the things -for which they 'die. To war if need be against evil, but wjth no hatred in the heart, is to prove that we'fight for ihc.' not merely to enforce our will; to add poise and humility to victory and permanence to its to negate the cankering, resentful bitterness that is the dangerous aftermath of defeat "A calm, sane horror of and a clear- eyed .recognition of the sad necessity for force in1' exceptional crises, when the right is imperilled, may be sii tiven clean of all hate. The insight to see this and the drength to do it are the price of lasting peace. D "What gift of the spirit can we offer to God and man on ChrfitnWs morning? What great debt does every mother-heart owe to mankind? and bring forth love in trie very presence of hatred and horror.
