  • Description

    POPE PAUL CALLED TODAY FOR THE INTERNATIONALISATION OF JERUSALEM AND FOR THE PROMPT SETTLEMENT OF OTHER TERRITORIAL DISPUTES IN THE MIDDLE EAST. HE MADE HIS PLEA AT A CONSISTORY IN THE VATICAN DURING WHICH HE CREATED 27 NEW CARDINALS TO RAISE THE CHURCH'S TOTAL TO A RECORD 118.

    THE POPE SAID THAT JERUSALEM MUST REMAIN FOR ALWAYS... "THE CITY OF GOD, FREE OASIS OF PEACE AND PRAYER...WITH ITS OWN STATUTE INTERNATIONALLY GUARANTEED."
    OF THE NEW CARDINALS CHOSE, 15 WERE FOREIGNERS AND 12 WERE ITALIAN - FIGURES WHICH SURPRISED MANY VATICAN OBSERVERS, WHO HAD EXPECTED YOUNGER MEN, FEWER ITALIANS AND MORE FROM THE DEVELOPING COUNTRIES. THE AVERAGE AGE OF THE NEW MEN WAS 61.

    AFTER THIS PART OF THE CEREMONY WAS OVER, VATICAN OFFICIALS, LED BY CARDINAL AMLETO CICOGNANI, WALKED THE 200 YARDS FROM THE CONSISTORY HALL TO THE POPE PIOUS XII AUDITORIUM FOR THE PRESENTATION OF SCROLLS.
