Monday, 4 August 2014 marks the 100-year anniversary of the start of the First World War.

It's an opportunity to pray for and remember the millions killed in 'The Great War'. It's also a time to pray for peace and bring to mind those currently dying on the world's battlefields - military personnel and civilians.

In this 'Catholic News' podcast Catholic Bishop of the Forces, the Rt Rev Richard Moth, talks to us about military chaplaincy - then and now - and how we can pray for peace and remember the dead without glorifying war.

Bishop Moth also refers to the WW1 painting 'Last General Absolution of the Munsters' by Italian artist Fortunino Matania.

Find out more about the painting in our video reflection here.
