  • Description

    POPE PAUL, AT A CEREMONY IN ST. PETER'S BASILICA, ROME, TODAY (SUNDAY) CONSECRATED 14 BISHOPS FROM MISSION AREAS AND OTHER COUNTRIES - INCLUDING BELGIUM, FRANCE, JAPAN AND THAILAND. THIS WAS THE HIGHLIGHT OF MISSIONS DAY, CELEBRATED BY ROMAN CATHOLICS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.

    THE POPE SAID HE WOULD HAVE LIKED TO SEE AMONG THE NEW BISHOPS "SOMEONE FROM THAT GREAT CHINESE PEOPLE WHICH IS ALWAYS IN OUR MIND AND DEAR TO US BECAUSE OF ITS ILLUSTRIOUS TRADITIONS OF CIVILIZATION, IT STRENUOUS CAPACITY FOR HARD WORK, AND THE GENEROUS PROOFS OF CATHOLIC FAITH GIVEN BY SO MANY OF ITS CHILDREN WITH EXEMPLARY FIRMNESS THROUGH THE CENTURIES." THEIR VACANT PLACES AMONG BISHOPS ATTENDING THE VATICAN ECUMENICAL COUNCIL WERE, HE ADDED, "LIKE MANY THORNS OF PAIN FOR US."
    THE CATHOLIC CHURCH, SAID POPE PAUL, DID NOT WAN TO DOMINATE BUT TO SERVE: WISHING TO CONTRIBUTE TO MANKIND'S PROGRESS ON THE ROAD TO PEACE. HE ENDED BY EXPRESSING THE HOPE THAT THE SEED OF CHRISTIANITY SOWN IN "CHINA'S FERTILE FURROWS AMID TEARS" WOULD SPROUT ONE DAY.
