Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - December 24, 1918, Lethbridge, Alberta te5 Si "4 VV Ill . I I 1 #1 "TOE A New Picture by the FuBotis DaaiBli Painter, Julius Krpnbeq:. HECRbS^! the shadow of it 'fell' upon a certain manger in Bcthlehtm-the same Bethlehem freed in the tunnoil of the war and now recalling to the world "On earth peace, � gOo'd will toward men," J For the same symbol, during years >of awfttt conflict, men have been strug-gling'and dying. Eyes'have b�en turned from the. sacred sign in the hands of a-consolef to the repeated sign, reverently placed bjj thfe hands of military authority as at;ribmc of the people for courage that did not falter. ' And the invalided hero, returning to the old home, carries on'liis breast the token that aiiiioiinces recogiiition of liis part in. the/^reat effort t�ward a riglu estaWishnient of peace cih earth. BraveVwomen, who'have made untold, sacrifices at the bedsides of the wounded, have cairried the same symbol, silently, patiently; devotedly, without special rewards, or special fame, content to do their plucky prt ni the splendid work. Sticli women know, all the world knows, that tlie symbol has been attached to but a few of all the heroes, yet the sign has its'nobility just the same. At the hour of one of themost impressive Christmas', seasgns in the whole Ifts*.ory of" the\,world'the Cross has., findeedj^-a deeper significance than ever-.it held; " , � \ The\world is told^.that the. ordeal through. whidi it has passied has exerted a vast rand momentous influence upon the religious efmotions of the world, without regard to any creed or sect. In the presence of such a fact we may well see in the Christmas now dawning, a profound and inspiring beaut)'. New emotions, jndivichjal and national, will affect every feature of an observance that always has a wider njeanipg thin any formula of sect, and that must inevitably gather still more various meanings in so significant r -crisis in 'the ^history of the nation aqc of its.indiyidufil hearts.;; = ^ �I 7^- J \ ;
