Pope Benedict XV (not the current Benedict XVI)

He was Pope from September 3, 1914 to January 22, 1922 which included WWI.

Turkey honored the Italian-born Benedict for opening up Catholic health facilities to all victims of the war, regardless of which side they fought on. The then Ottoman Empire was allied with another empire that lost that war, Germany.

With love in Christ.
