  • Description

    THOUSANDS OF DUSTMEN AND STREET SWEEPERS AROUND POPE PAUL TODAY (TUESDAY) WHEN HE VISITED ROME'S MAIN CENTRE FOR THE DISPOSAL OF REFUSE. TODAY'S VISIT WAS PART OF THE POPE'S INVESTIGATION OF THE WORKERS' WORLD.

    CROWDS STOOD ON DUSTCARTS SPECIALLY POLISHED FOR THE OCCASION, TO SHOUT A WELCOME TO POPE PAUL. THEY CROWDED ROUND HIM AS HE TOURED THE DEPOT, AND SOME HANDED HIM PERSONAL PETITIONS IN ENVELOPES.

    THE POPE TOLD HIS LISTENERS NOT TO BE ASHAMED OF THEIR WORK. THEY WERE CARRYING OUT A "GREAT AND USEFUL SERVICE." THE WORK OF MAN, NO MATTER HOW HUMBLE, DESERVED ESTEEM.

    IN HIS BLESSING, THE POPE RECALLED THAT CHRIST WASHED THE FEET OF HIS APOSTLES.
