    Background: President Charles de Gaulle attended a solemn High Mass in Notre Dame today in celebration of the Cathedral's eight hundredth anniversary. Pope Paul sent a message from Rome and the famous cathedral in the heart of Paris was crowded with the nation's leaders and foreign representatives - including the Soviet ambassador, Mr. Vinogradaov. Thousands of Parisians and foreign tourists crammed the square outside to listen to a relay of the mass.

    Notre Dame was founded in 1163 by Louis the French King and Saint. The eight centennary celebrations were put off from last year as a mark of mourning for the death of Pope John.

    Pope Paul's message was broadcast from the French church of St. Louis in Rome. He hailed Notre Dame as a "jewel of gothic art" that had been "intimately linked to the great religious and political hours of France".
