  • Description

    POPE PAUL MADE HIS FIRST TRIP OUTSIDE THE VATICAN CITY FOR JUST OVER A MONTH -- FOLLOWING HIS PROSTATE OPERATION - WHEN HE PRAYED AT A MONUMENT TO THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION IN ROME TODAY (FRIDAY). HE BRAVED LIGHT RAIN AND CHILLY WEATHER BUT APPEARED WELL IF RATHER THINNER THAN BEFORE.

    THE POPE WAS CHEERED BY THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE AND SHOWERED WITH FLOWERS AS HE ARRIVED IN HIS BLACK LIMOUSINE AT THE MONUMENT. IT IS A LONG-STANDING TRADITION FOR POPES TO VISIT THE MONUMENT ON 8 DECEMBER -- THE FEAST OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION. IT WAS BUILT IN 1854 AND PROCLAIMED THE DOGMA THAT THE MOTHER OF JESUS WAS BORN "WITHOUT THE TAINT OF ORIGINAL SIN".

    POPE PAUL'S VOICE WAS FIRM AS HE PRAYED AT THE FOOT OF THE FLOWER-BEDECKED MONUMENT, AND HE ASKED EVERYONE TO VENERATE AND EMULATE THE MADONNA. THE MONUMENT -- A TALL COLUMN TOPPED BY A STATUE OF MARY THE MOTHER OF JESUS -- IS NEAR THE FOOT OF ROME'S PICTURESQUE SPANISH STEPS.
