Born in Castel- nuova Scrivia, Italy, on Speculation By James C. O'Neill (N.C.W.C. News Service) ROME--Much specula- tion was stirred up here following Pope Paul VI's expansion of the College of Cardinals to an un- precedented 103 members and his promise to enlarge it still more at the end of the ecumen- ical council. Aside from noting the in- creased internationalization of the college as a result of new appointments, s p • c u I a t o r a' main interest centered on whe- ther or nt the expansion was the Pope's first step toward the establishment of a consulta- tive body of the hierarchy rep- resentative of the entire world. This so-called "senate of bishops" was first mentioned at the early session of the ecumenical council. P o p • Paul himself, while always avoiding any such term as "senate," has twice declared himself to be in sympathy with the creation of such a consultative body. Commenting on the cardin- als' appointment, the Bologna (Italy) Catholic daily. L'Awe- nire d'Italia, said that "there is a widespread feeling that the decision of Paul VI to cre- ate new cardinals may be re- garded as a step toward the realization of that consultative organ referred to by the Pope • . , It could be a special body, a sort of 'episcopal council' suitable for helping the Pope in the work and responsibility of governing the universal Church." The Rome daily, Giornale d'Italia, suggested that the ecumenical council had "asked for an innovation be- yond the Sacred College it- self, in which a greater num- ber of bishops would take part and which would enable the 'senate of the Church' (as the College of Cardinals is traditional described) to be more effective in regard to the new needs caused by the Catholic expansion of our times."

SURPRISE NOTED: Pas÷oral Concern Seen eflectedl n Choices IF VATICAN CITY (NC)-- first and foremost the corn- The Vatican Radio, com- menting on the appoint- ment of 27 new cardinals, stated that Pope Paul VI's choices reflect particularly the pastoral concern of the Pope. After noting that the an- uncement came as a surprise unexpected even in usually well informed quarters," the Vatican R a d i o commentator said that "Paul VI did not want to delay longe; raising to the purple certain prelates who oc- cupy important sees. Considered from the point of view of na- tionality, the list of the newly elected confirm the wide breath :f universality characteristic of e Church." Analyzing the components of the new members of the col- lege, the commentator said "It is easy to see the high recognition which is being c o n f e r r e d on the Oriental churches which will have three new cardinals in the sac- red college." "Notable also is the atten- on which the list gives to the African continent," Vatican Ra- dio said. "Asia is also honor- ably represented." "Lastly, the inclusion among the newly elected of some names such as that of Arch- bishops Josyf Slipyj of Lvov the Ukrainians and Josef Beran of Prague reveals further what rle the requirements of faith- ness and dedication in the service of the Church which in- spired the choice of the new cardinals," t h e commentator concluded. mitments of the Second Vati- can Ecumenical Council, have led so far to the postponement of the holding of a consistory for the appointment of new cardinals. "Nevertheless His Holiness, not wishing to postpone further the conferring of the dignity of cardinal on certain prelates, particularly in respect to cer- tain important Sees--white re- serving to himself inclusions within the Sacred College of other ecclesiastics who are par- ticularly outstanding in the service of the Holy See in the near future at the end of the ecumenical council -- w i 1 1 be pleased to raise to the sacred purple in the secret consistory of Feb. 22..." Pope Grants Permission To Carry Oils ROME (NC)--Pope Paul VI has granted permission for all priests of the Rome diocese to carry holy oils either on their .persons, in their residences or m their automobiles. The Pope granted the request in answer to the petition of Luigi Cardinal Traglia, pro- vicar general of Rome. Archbishop Enrico Dante, perfect of the Congregation of Rites, said no decree has been issued. But he declared that bishops may apply to the con- L'Osservatore Romano, Vati- gregation for a similar faculty can City daily, said in a note if they desire it. The reason accompanying publication of the Cardinal Traglia made his re- Pope's list: quest is the increasing rate of "V a r i o u s circumstances, car accidents. But in his speeches closing both the second and third sessions of the ecumenical council, Pope Paul gave an idea of what may be expected in the future. At the close of the second session of Dec. 4, 1983, the Pontiff noted that the major workload in carrying out the decisions of the council will fall on the already established Pontifical Commission for the Reform of Canon Law. Then he added: "In this work which will follow the council the collab- oration of the episcopate, re- quired in a new way by the needs and organic nature of the Church, will be very precious to us. Naturally it will be a source of joy to us to choose from among the bishops of the world and from the ranks of the religious orders, as was done for the preparatory com- missions of the council, dis- tinguished and expert brethren who, along with qualified mem- bers of the Sacred College, will bring us their counsel and help to translate into specific and fitting norms the general decisions of the council." The Pope further declared: "And so experience will sug- gest to us how, without preiudice to the prerogatives of the Roman pontiff defined by the First Vatican Council, the earnest and cordial col- laboration of the bishops can more effectively promote the good of the universal Church." At the close of the council's third session Nov. 21, 1984, Pope Paul was even more ex- plicit about consulting the world's bishops. He said: "The ecumenical council will have its definite conclusion with the fourth session. But the application of its decrees will involve a network of postcon- ciliar commissions in which the collaboration of the bishops will be indispensable. Likewise the occurrence of questions of gen- eral interest to the modern world will make us even more disposed than we are now, ven- erable brothers, to call togeth- er some of you, designated at the proper time, and consult you at determined times in or- der to have around us the com- fort of your presence, the help of your experience, the support of your counsel and the assist- ance of your authority." Several Vatican officials were willing to speculate that the enlargement of the college will contribute to the formation of the "council of bishops," par- ticularly in view of the fact that the new appointments in- clude so many heads of resi- dential Sees. POPE PAUL VI GREETS children of the 'heroes of the impossible,' his description of circus performers. The young- sters were invited to the Pope's side after he had completed a talk before an American circus troupe. The pontiff said circus people "brightenthe lies" of audiences and urged the performers to "fulfill the obligations of your profession in a Christian way." As the photograph was taken one child was overwhelmed by the audience and burst into tears. -- (Religious News Service Photo) BOOK PUBLISHED: Marriage Cases Top VATICAN CITY (NC)--The decisions of the Sacred Roman Rota for the year 1954 have been published by the Vatican Polyglot Press, disclosing that the Church's high court handed d o w n 251 final decisions that year, only two of which did not involve matrimonial cases. The volume, which is print- ed annually and contains a se- lection of the cases decided on 10 years previously, actually contains only 159 of the more interesting cases handled in 1954.

One case involved a marriage in which one partner was a Moslem who had been bap- tized, but without the right in- tention. Another ease involved a subdeacon who was dispensed from Holy Orders to permit him to contract marriage but who later was impeded be- cause it was erroneously be- lieved he had been given the order of deacon or priesthood.

VATICAN. CITY (NC) -- Pope Paul VI has forcefully reas- serted the need for Catholic Action with a capital "A". "We ourselves are not un- aware of the criticism and ac- cusations leveled against Cath- olic Action," the Pope told members of the central com- mittee of the Italian Catholic Action who met him in audi- ence. "It is regarded by some as an expression of a 'clerical' notion of Catholic effort, that is to say, calculating and pragmatic. It is said to be the left-over mentality of a sterile dosemindedness . . . • conservative and reactionary, inept at understanding the cultural and soeial forms which reveal the basic trends of human evolution • • ." he said. "We do not hesitate to re- assert before you the necessity of your function for the defense and affirmation of the Catholic name in its authentic mean- ing," he said. "We willingly express our trust in your ability to give an ever new, positive, fruitful and beneficial witness to Catholic principles."

A year ago the Vatican City daily, L'Osservatorc Re- mane, reported he had died. This false news was never corrected and found its way into the official Vatican publi- cation, Acts of the Holy See.
