“Awards that are given to honour valour and bravery are very useful to encourage [people] to accomplish praiseworthy deeds because, as they do credit to persons worthy of the grateful recognition of the Church and society, they also stimulate others to follow their path leading to praise and honour.”

Vatican, 7 February 1905, Pope Pius X
