  • Description

    POPE PAUL TODAY (SUNDAY) MADE HIS FIRST PUBLIC COMMENT ON THE CESSATION OF THE AMERICAN BOMBING OF NORTH VIETNAM AND THE ENLARGED NEGOTIATIONS TO BE HELD IN PARIS. HE SPOKE DURING HIS USUAL SUNDAY MIDDAY BLESSING OF THE CROWDS IN ST. PETER'S SQUARE.

    "PEACE," THE POPE SAID, "DEPENDS NOT ONLY ON A CEASEFIRE AND RENUNCIATION OF ARMS, BUT ON THE TRANSFORMATION OF MEN'S THINKING ACCORDING TO THE HIGHER PRINCIPLES OF REASON, JUSTICE AND LIBERTY."
    EVEN THIS WAS NOT ENOUGH WITHOUT BROTHERHOOD, MUTUAL FORGIVENESS, LOYAL COLLABORATION AND LOVE, HE TOLD THE CROWDS.

    BUT HE ADDED, "UNFORTUNATELY IT DOES NOT APPEAR THAT THE ATTITUDE WHICH MAKES (PEACE) EFFECTIVE HAS MATURED IN THE SPIRITS OF EVERYONE."
    "PEACE IS SLOW PRECISELY BECAUSE IT PRESUPPOSED A SPIRITUAL EVOLUTION, A HIGHER EDUCATION, A NEW VISION OF HUMAN HISTORY," THE POPE SAID.

    VIETNAM, "THE ANXIETY OF THE WORLD," WOULD BECOME THE SYMBOL OF NEW TIMES "WHEN VIOLENCE WILL NO LONGER DECIDE RELATIONS BETWEEN PEOPLES, WHEN IDEOLOGIES OF POWER, OF REVOLUTION AND TOTALITARIAN EXCLUSIVISM DOMINATE THE PHILOSOPHY AND POLICIES OF NATIONS WHICH ARE AFTER ALL MEMBERS OF ONE SINGLE HUMAN RACE."
    VATICAN SOURCES SAID ON FRIDAY (1 NOVEMBER) THAT THE POPE WAS DELIGHTED WITH THE NEWS OF THE BOMBING HALT AND HAD SENT MESSAGES TO U.S. PRESIDENT JOHNSON AND THE SOUTH VIETNAMESE GOVERNMENT WELCOMING THE MOVE.
