    World in Flames [Alt-history FRP] [Rp]

    VATICAN CITY STATE Stato della Città del Vaticano Pope Pius XI, c. 1930 The Holy See stands amidst uncertainty following the declaration for the Reunification of Italy by King Victor Emmanuel in 1870. Since then the Papal State has been in an ambiguous and precarious existence, balancing its assertion of its dominion in Central Italy with the growing secular pressures within the Mediterranean peninsula that threaten to derail its temporal sovereignty. His Eminence, Eugenio Pacelli, Apostolic Nuncio and Cardinal Secretary of State. “Get Monsignor Pacelli!,” Pope Pius XI beckoned as he summoned his Cardinal Secretary of State to give his morning briefing. “Tua santita,” Eugenio kneels and proceeds to kiss the Ring of the Fisherman before rising. He kept his eyes down and began to speak, “The Genoans and the Sicilians are rebelling against King Victor Emmanuel.” The Pope looked out from his window as he gazed at Bernini’s fountain in St Peter’s Square saying in reply, “We have sat for over sixty years as my noble predecessor Pius IX refers to being ‘Prisoners of the Vatican.’ We will no longer, as the beacon of the Church, Christ’s Church to sit passively and allow the greed and toils of the secular agenda to derail our holy authority!” FOREIGN POLICY In order to dispel the uncertainty, Pope Pius XI began to mobilize a campaign within the Holy See, sending a delegation of Apostolic Nuncios under the lead of Monsignor Eugenio Pacelli, Cardinal Secretary of State to the Quirinal Palace in order to negotiate with King Victor Emmanuel III. With this intention, Pius XI seeks to reform and reaffirm the papal claimant to the central states within Italy in return for utilizing the Chair of Peter as a vehicle to garner aide to stabilize the Genoan and Sicilian uprisings. Pius’ XI outspoken demeanor, coupled with his uncompromising and intolerable reactions to failure have become a critical asset to his papacy. In this regard, Pope Pius XI envisions placing the Roman Catholic Church back on the political map, instituting the Pax Christi in Regno Christi throughout all of the European theatre and that of the world. His first initiative is a means of solidifying a concrete temporal state with functional diplomatic ties on the continent and across the Atlantic, specifically. He seeks to renew the evangelization efforts and sending delegates of missionaries into East Asia and Northern Africa. Furthermore, the Church desires to begin its humanitarian efforts in the far reaches of the East as well as cement a foothold of a humanitarian agenda in the European landscape. To begin this campaign, the Holy Father circulated his Encyclical Letter: UNITATEM IN TERRIS ENCYCLICAL OF POPE PIUS XI ON RECONSTRUCTION OF THE SOCIAL ORDER TO OUR VENERABLE BRETHREN, THE PATRIARCHS, PRIMATES, ARCHBISHOPS, BISHOPS, AND OTHER ORDINARIES IN PEACE AND COMMUNION WITH THE APOSTOLIC SEE, AND LIKEWISE TO ALL THE FAITHFUL OF THE CATHOLIC WORLD. The Holy Father commends the States of the world to focus their efforts on civil repair and furthermore exhorts its flock across the globe in the following areas: On the origin of civil authority The recognition of the civil authority in any respective state derives from that of God and the wisdom of the Holy Spirit. A respect for the Kingdom of God and the eternal reign of the Lord Jesus Christ is the key to salvation and hope for the prosperity of the State. [II] Its proper relations with the Church Respect for the Holy Mother Church who is entrusted the salvation and peace of all souls is of utmost importance for the continued stability of the temporal realm. [III] On the chief duties of Christian citizens The civic virtue of the Christian people is to foster the cooperation among the nations. Charity is our universal calling and it begins inside the home. All communities of faith, not discounting the State, are mandated therefore to find Christ in others. [IV] Against the tenets of Socialism Socialism inhibits human freedom and places Man above the hope and faith in God. We are reminded that no human institution may supplement the eternal graces that the Lord Jesus Christ provides for His children. May we not become susceptible to vices of fallacious social doctrine. [V] Against false teachings on human liberty Remember, brothers and sisters in faith, that human liberty first originates in God and in God alone. The Peace of Christ in the Kingdom of Christ is the finality of human liberty and I compel that the States of the world protect the dignity of life, the station of human liberty, and the defense of religious freedom. I, Pius XI, Vicar of Christ and Supreme Pontiff of the Most Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church, do hereby announce a plenary indulgence and full diplomatic dialogue and humanitarian aid with the Holy See to those nations who seek to abide by the criterion prescribed by this letter of ours, committing to safeguard the “Peace of Christ in the Kingdom of Christ.” I hereby commend you who wish to embark on this effort to recognize the Holy See as a diplomatic entity in central Italy by sending your envoys to us. Lastly, the Apostolic See hereby declares the institution of the Legionaries of Saint Peter and compels its faithful flock to muster up ten thousand men for the Holy Roman Church. Deus Magnus. ☩In Nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti. Summary: The Holy See moves to send ambassadors to Quirinal Palace to discuss the Sicilian and Genoan uprisings in order to stabilize interior Italy and open dialogue about the return and sovereignty of the Papal States. The Holy See moves to send ambassadors to begin diplomatic recognition efforts with the French Empire and the Kaisertum Österreich to affirm a Catholic entente to control Western and Central Europe. The Holy See asks its secular counterparts to muster 10,000 men for the Legionaries of St Peter. (Mod + nations) The Holy See moves to assert temporal sovereignty and garner recognition from other envoys and diplomatic entities as Italy is divided. (Mod + nations) The Holy Father sends out his encyclical Unitatem in Terris to embark on his foreign policy campaign to extend the sphere of the Catholic Church beyond its borders amidst growing wars on many fronts.
