  • Description

    POPE PAUL, IN HIS EASTER MESSAGE TODAY (SUNDAY) CONDEMNED RACIALISM AND SAID THAT, ALONG WITH NATIONALISM AND CLASS-HATRED, IT SHOULD BE REPLACED BY UNIVERSAL LOVE. ABOUT 100,000 PEOPLE CROWDED INTO ST. PETER'S SQUARE IN ROME TO HEAR THE POPE SPEAK AND RECEIVE HIS TRADITIONAL BLESSING 'URBI ET ORBI' -- TO THE CITY OF ROME AND THE WORLD.

    THE POPE MADE A FURTHER APPEAL FOR PEACE IN VIETNAM, URGING ALL PARTIES INVOLVED IN THE CONFLICT TO "THINK RESOLUTELY IN TERMS OF MILITARY TRUCE AND HONOURABLE AND FAIR NEGOTIATIONS. HE SAID HE LOOKED EAGERLY ON RECENT PROMISING MOVES TOWARDS A TRUCE.

    POPE PAUL PRAYED THAT SCEPTICISM REGARDING THE CONSTITUTIONAL INABILITY OF MANKIND TO ADVANCE IN FREEDOM WOULD NEVER TRIUMPH, BUT THAT HOPE WOULD BE CONFIRMED, AND WITH HOPE, THE NECESSARY ACTION TO RESOLVE PRESENT CONFLICTS AND PREVENT OTHERS IN THE FUTURE.

    THE POPE, WHO HAD EARLIER CELEBRATED MASS IN THE OPEN AIR BEFORE THE THOUSANDS IN ST. PETER'S SQUARE, WISHED PILGRIMS A HAPPY EASTER IN SEVERAL LANGUAGES.
