  • Description

    POPE PAUL INAUGURATED A "YEAR OF FAITH" AT AN IMPRESSIVE CEREMONY IN ST. PETER'S SQUARE LAST NIGHT (THURSDAY) AND SAID HE WAS CONVINCED THAT IT WOULD CONTRIBUTE TO BROTHERHOOD AND PEACE IN THE WORLD.

    THE POPE AND 24 OF THE 27 NEW CARDINALS HE CREATED EARLIER THIS WEEK WERE CELEBRATING A SPECIAL MASS FOR THE 1,900TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE MARTYRDOM OF SAINTS PETER AND PAUL.

    IN HIS SERMON, THE POPE SAID THAT, DURING THE YEAR THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH WOULD RETHINK THE REASONS FOR ITS EXISTENCE, OPEN ITSELF TO OTHER CHRISTIAN CHURCHES AND DO ALL IT COULD FOR THE WORLD OF TODAY.

    THE CARDINALS IN DEEP RED, FORMED A SQUARE AROUND THE RAISED ALTAR WHERE THE POPE, IN WHITE AND GOLD, LED THE CELEBRATION. AFTER THE SERMON THEY EACH KNELT BEFORE THE POPE, WERE GIVEN THEIR JEWELLED CARDINAL'S RING, AND KISSED HIS HAND.

    THE THREE NEW CARDINALS NOT PRESENT - THE APOSTOLIC NUNCIOS TO ITALY, SPAIN AND PORTUGAL - TRADITIONALLY RECEIVE THEIR RED BIRETTAS FROM THE HEADS OF STATE OF THOSE COUNTRIES INSTEAD OF FROM THE POPE HIMSELF.
