Blessed are the colonisers

'Colonization appears as a wonderful work of patience, great courage and brotherly love. No nation and no race has the right to live in isolation. Colonization is based, not upon brutal domination, but upon the principles of high morality, full of feelings of love, peace and brotherhood. The Catholic Church has always supported colonization, provided it was carried out by an honest and humane system and without using force. Therefore we feel its tremendous beauty and grasp its terrific force.'

From L'Osservatore Romano, official organ of His Holiness Pope Pius XI, 24 February 1935.
