Topic: The Christian Warfare

[General Guisan to the Swiss Army, as quoted in the Feuille d'Avis de Neuchatel, Switzerland (translation)]

There is still much to be done to prepare ourselves mentally. . . . Beyond and above material prepardness, even mental preparedness, is the need for Spiritual preparation. Our fathers knew this, and on bended knee they turned to God before going forth to battle. . . . Religious feeling must be kept alive in our hearts. The soldier must join in the prayers of his wife and children and family. The spirit of good humor, of mutual help, of trust and sacrifice, must also be a living force every day in each unit. For in times like these . . . the sense of solidarity is a national necessity. . . . In this way only will our country be truly strong, and the army truly prepared.
