  • Description

    POPE PAUL RENEWED HIS APPEAL FOR PEACE IN VIETNAM AT A SPECIAL MASS AT ST. PETER'S YESTERDAY (THURSDAY). THE MASS MARKED THE FIRST ANNIVERSARY OF THE END OF THE ECUMENICAL COUNCIL.

    THE POPE SAID HE HOPED THE TRUCES IN VIETNAM COULD BE TRANSFORMED INTO AN ARMISTICE AND THAT AN ARMISTICE WOULD PROVIDE THE OPPORTUNITY FOR SINCERE NEGOTIATIONS WHICH IN THEIR TURN WOULD LEAD TO PEACE.

    SPEAKING ON THE WORK OF THE ECUMENICAL COUNCIL, THE POPE SAID THAT IT COULD AT THE DISTANCE OF A YEAR BE BETTER SEEN AS ONE OF THE GREAT EVENTS OF CHRISTIANITY.

    SEVERAL THOUSAND NUNS WERE IN THE BASILICA FOR THE SERVICE AND THE POPE SPECIALLY CALLED ON THEM AS REPRESENTATIVES OF THEIR ORDERS TO PRAY FOR PEACE AND FOR THE FULFILMENT OF THE ECUMENICAL COUNCIL'S WORK.
