  • Description

    POPE PAUL VI MADE HIS FIRST PUBLIC APPEARANCE TODAY (SUNDAY) SINCE HIS PROSTATE OPERATION ON NOVEMBER 4TH. HE SPOKE TO 20,000 PILGRIMS IN ST. PETER'S SQUARE FROM HIS STUDY WINDOW, AND SAID HE HOPED TO RESUME HIS NORMAL WORK SOON.

    THE 70 YEAR OLD PONTIFF LOOKED WELL, THOUGH HIS VOICE WAS A LITTLE HOARSE AND WEAKER THAN USUAL. HE SAID "HERE WE ARE AGAIN, HAPPILY, IN CONVERSATION WITH YOU FOR OUR WEEKLY PRAYER AFTER THE TRIAL UNDERGONE BY OUR HEALTH....WE THANK THE LORD WHO IN HIS GOODNESS REHABILITATES US IN OUR MINISTRY WHICH, WITH A LITTLE PATIENCE, WE HOPE TO RESUME REGULARLY...WE MUST BE GOOD, PIOUS, ACTIVE AND COURAGEOUS IN THE SERVICE OF OUR BROTHERS IF WE WISH TO GIVE DIRECTION AND VALUE TO OUR PRESENT EXISTENCE...THINKING OF THE AGITATED NEWS OF THE WORLD WE ARE EVEN MORE PERSUADED THAT IT NEEDS GOODWILL, VIRTUE AND FAITH MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE....AND IN THIS WE ARE ALL IN A POSITION TO CONTRIBUTE WITH GOD'S HELP WHICH WE NOW INVOKE, HAPPILY PRAYING."
    THE POPE SPOKE FOR ABOUT EIGHT MINUTES, AND ENDED WITH HIS USUAL SUNDAY MIDDAY BLESSING.
