  • Description

    POPE PAUL IN A RECORDED TELEVISION SPEECH ON THE EVE OF HIS DEPARTURE FOR THE HOLY LAND HAS URGED THE WORLD'S CHURCHES TO 'FORGIVE AND FORGET' THEIR OLD QUARRELS.

    SPEAKING IN ENGLISH, HE SAID: "WHEN WE WERE ARCHBISHOP OF THE CITY OF MILAN, WE SENSED SOMETHING IN THE DYNAMIC POWER OF THE INDUSTRIAL WORLD. WE MUST WELCOME THE FRUITS OF TECHNICAL ENTERPRISE AND FIND WAYS OF USING THEM FOR THE BENEFIT OF MANKIND".

    THE PONTIFF ADDED: "IT SHOULD BE USED TO SERVE MAN AND UNITE HIM MORE CLOSELY WITH GOD AND HIS FELLOW MAN".

    POPE PAUL HAS, IN THE MEANTIME, FINALISED DETAILS FOR HIS PILGRIMAGE. TODAY, (FRIDAY), HE RECEIVED IN AUDIENCE HIS SECRETARY OF STATE, CARDINAL AMLETO CICOGNANI, AND OFFICIALS OF THE ITALIAN AIRLINE ALITALIA, WHO WILL FLY WITH HIM TO THE HOLY LAND.

    IT HAS ALSO BEEN ANNOUNCED THAT THE PONTIFF WILL CARRY WITH HIM GIFTS FOR THE CHURCHES HE IS TO VISIT. THEY WILL BE IN REMEMBRANCE OF THE THREE MAGI WHO BROUGHT GOLD, FRANKINCENSE AND MYRRH TO THE CHRISTCHILD. THE CHURCH OF THE NATIVITY IN BETHLEHEM WILL RECEIVE A GOLD ROSE, A CENSER AND A PYX, A VESSEL IN WHICH CONSECRATED BREAD IS KEPT. THE CHURCH OF THE HOLY SEPULCHRE IN JERUSALEM WILL RECEIVE A GOLDEN OLIVE BRANCH.

    AND WHILE OFFICIALS IN THREE COUNTRIES WERE PUTTING THE FINAL TOUCHES TO PREPARATIONS FOR THE VISIT, POPE PAUL SAID IN HIS SPEECH THAT HE HOPED HIS PILGRIMAGE WOULD HELP ACHIEVE PEACE WHICH PEOPLE EVERYWHERE WERE PRAYING FOR.
