Abstract

C'est une armée d'Orient fortement éprouvée que retrouve le général Sarrail, en décembre 1915, en arrivant à Salonique. Envolés, les rêves d'aventure. Dissipés, les espoirs de victoire rapide. La menace bulgare, plus tard les bombardements allemands, les épidémies se chargeront de saper le moral de cette troupe. C'est la raison pour laquelle l'appui logistique et spirituel des pères lazaristes, présents dans la région depuis le XVIIIe siècle, fut crucial. Le général Sarrail leur en sut gré et à aucun moment ne fit montre d'anticléricalisme à leur égard. Sa franche collaboration avec les prêtres de la Mission, en particulier avec le P. Lobry, le visiteur provincial, fut extrêmement profitable. This is a strongly afflicted army that general Sarrail found, in December 1915, when he reached Salonika. The dreams of adventure had vanished. The hopes of a quick victory had been dissipated. The Bulgarian threat, later the German bombigs, the epidemics will undertake to undermine the morale of this troop. That is the reason why the logistic and spiritual support from Lazarist fathers, settled in the region since the XVIIIth century was crucial. General Sarrail was grateful to them and never showed any anticlericalism towards them. His unequivocal collaboration with the priests of the Mission, in particular with Father Lobry, the provincial visitor, was extremely beneficial.
