  • Description

    POPE PAUL TOLD ROMAN CATHOLIC LAYMEN IN THE VATICAN CITY TODAY (SUNDAY) THAT IT WAS ABSURD TO THINK THEY COULD FREE THEMSELVES FROM THE AUTHORITY OF THE CHURCH. HE ISSUED HIS WARNING IN A SERMON AT A MASS FOR THE 3,000 MEMBERS OF THE CURRENT WEEK-LONG CONGRESS OF THE LAITY.

    IN HIS SERMON, THE POPE SAID HISTORY HAD SHOWN THAT ANYONE ATTEMPTING TO ACT WITHOUT, OR AGAINST, THE CHURCH HIERARCHY "WOULD BE ONLY A TRICKLE OF WATER CUTTING ITSELF OFF FROM THE MAINSTREAM AND ENDING MISERABLY BY SINKING INTO THE SAND".

    A BISHOP SAID YESTERDAY THAT INDEPENDENT IDEAS WERE SEETHING AMONG THE LAITY AT THE CONGRESS DISCUSSION GROUPS HAD FAVOURED RESPONSIBLE FAMILY PLANNING AND A VOICE FOR THE LAITY IN CHURCH MOVEMENTS.

    A FRENCH-SPANISH GROUP VOICED ANXIETY AND RESTLESSNESS AT THE LACK OF A LEAD FROM THE CHURCH ON THE PROBLEM OF BIRTH CONTROL, BUT THE POPE HAS GIVEN NO INDICATION THAT HE PLANS A PRONOUNCEMENT ON THIS SUBJECT AT PRESENT.
