SERVICE AND THRIFT
OUR NOBLE DEFENDERS by CARDINAL MERCIER

only man who does not recognize that fact, as, simple as the simplest of his soldiers, he stands in the trenches and puts new courage, by the serenity of his face, into the hearts of those of whom he requires that they shall not doubt of their country. The foremost duty of every Belgian citizen at this hour is gratitude to the army.
If any man had rescued you from shipwreck or from a fire; you would hold yourselves bound to him by a debt of everlasting thankfulness. But it is not one man-it is two hundred and fifty thousand men-who fought, who suffered, who fell for you so that you might be free.

NOTES AND QUESTIONS
Biography. Cardinal Mercier (1851- ), a native of Belgium, was born in a village adjoining the historic battlefield of Waterloo. For many years he was a professor in the University of Louvain, Belgium. In 1906 he was made Archbishop of Malines. Since he had always been a champion of liberty, his distinguished service to the stricken Belgians during the World War was most natural. This selection is taken from his address, "Patriotism and Endurance," one of the great speeches of the World War. In the autumn of 1919 Cardinal Mercier visited America, and was greeted everywhere with profound admiration.
Discussion. 1. Read aloud Cardinal Mercier's words of gratitude to the wounded Belgian soldiers. 2. In what two instances does he say they were "saviors"? 3. What does he point out as the foremost duty of every Belgian citizen? 4. Find words in this speech that we may apply to American soldiers who fought in the World War. 5. How has our country shown its gratitude to those who fought in the World War? 6. Find in the Glossary the meaning of: vocation; onslaught; assuredly. T. Pronounce: Mercier; Havre; Malines; Louvain; Liege; Calais.
