POPE GIVES SURPRISE MESS,00GE: "Warns World Heeds Peace Of Christ POPE JOHN XXIII imparted ,the traditional Easter bless- ing to the dty of Rome and to the World. oEaster Message Cites Church's VATICAN CITY, April 23 (Radio, NC)  His Holiness Pope John XXIII has warned the peoples of the world that peace cannot be achieved solely by negotiations and human ingenuity. "The foundations of peace are nothing else than truth, justice, true love and a generous willingness to give and to give oneseff for one's brothers," Pope John said. "Only the peace of Christ can preserve and save the world because it rests on eternal truth and has as its ohject man living in time but moving toward eternity," he continued. Pope John spoke from the central balcony of St. Peter's basilica on Easter to a huge crowd gathered in St. Peter's square as he gave his traditional blessing to the city and the world. His 10-mimtte talk came as a surprise because the previous eve- ning he had broadcast his regular Easter message over Vatican Radio. Seated on a temporary raised throne, wearing his golden and silver papal tiara, the Pontiff read his message. His words were carried by loudspeakers to the more than 250,000 people pecking the square--one of the largest crowds to gather in recent years there--and by radio and television to all parts of Europe. The Pope said: "Scientific and technical progress, which gives rise to a universal wave of admiration and which the Christian apostolate intends to make use of by applying it widely, has also in- creased reasons for world anxiety which are not imaginary. "Every nation, big and small, considering its siluation even simply within the limits of its own internal position, has reason to ktr. " "This fear can be dissipated only by the harmonious efforts of all loples for the preservation of peace where it reigns now." The Pope cited Christ as the supreme example of the founda- tions of peace. "In this," he stated, "the  Lord Jesus was the Master . . . He gave the example with His life. From Him we learn the exercise o{ this love and this outpouring of peace." The Pope warned that "recourse to any other consideration and exclusive trust in negotiations and human ingenuity are to be considered of little effectiveness. The Pontiff concluded: "We proclaim before Heaven and earth that this year and through all time the gift of Easter is the gift of peace." Before giving his blessing, Pope John wished a happy Easter to peoples throughout the world in more than a dozen languages, including English, Portuguese, Spanish, Dutch, German, Arabic, Greek, Polish, Russian, Ukrainian, Hungarian and Ethiopian. As he concluded his blessing in Latin, 500 doves were re- leased to fly over St. Peter's square. The blessing climaxed a morning of ceremonies in St. Peter's basilica, where the Pope offered Mass at the Altar of the Con- fession. A crowd of some 30,000 people, including 20 cardinals Vol. 66--No. 16 and members of the corps of diplomats accredited to the Holy See, attended. At Pope John's Mass, the C.qel and Epistle were chanted in both Latin and Greek to symbolize the Pontiff's jurisdiction over the Latin and Eastern Rites of the Church. After the Mass, a special blessing with the major relics of St. Peter's--a piece of the True Cross, a fragment of the Lance of Longinus and the so-called Vl of Veronica--was given from the balcony of the chapel in which the relies are kept. An English translation of the Pontiff's message follows: "O peace, peace of Christmas and Easter! "You understand, dear children, how the pastoral solicitude of the humble successor of St. Peter extends in a fatherly way both to those who believe in Christ and His Gospel and also the others who, though ignoring the work of the Redemption, belong to Christ and are unknowingly bound to Him. "Yes, beloved children, the moving and anxious prayer of the present time, the hope of Easter, is the invocation, the sighing, the outcry for peace. "We respect the consciences of everyone and all the energies which are working toward the affirmation of universal good, which has shown .itself moderately in recent years. But We do not do so without the emergence of a heartfelt anxiety for the threat to the peace which all people really long for and before whose possible if deplorable loss everyone trembles.

Later, he referred to his "longing" that non-Catholics and all men share in the be.sjngs of the Risen Christ arid that "all of them may be ql6t6 uched by the joy of this ex- ant news: The Lord is risen indeed and has appeared to Simon." The Pope recalled his years as apostolic delegate in Bulgaria. He told of the ancient Orthodox E a s t e r ceremony at the cathedral of Sofia "in which we could witness the bringing forth from the great church the first flame which announced the Resurrection." This was accompanied by cries of "Christ is risen," ms the candles were carried away, Pope John said. (Continued on Page 2) Ileadlines Christ's Resurrection is the inspiration for the Church's missionary drive and its "courageous de- fense of the principles on which the edifice of hu- man dignity and Christian civilization is built," His Holiness Pope John XXIII has declared. In an Easter eve broadcast to Catholics of the world, the Holy Father intertwined two ancient phrases: "The Lord is truly risen" and its response "And He appeared unto Simon." The Pope gave voice to the Resurrection's mes- sage of hope and triumph and at the same time under- lined the role of the popes as vicars of Christ on earth, vicars who transmit and re-emphasize that message throughout the centuries. But in his message he also warmly showed his feelings for the non-Catholic world and even the non- Christian world. Pope John spoke of a moving Easter rite cele- brated by the Orthodox in Bulgaria, where he was apostol/e delegate in the 1930's.

(NC)The head of the ecumenical council's Secretariat for Promoting Chris- tian Unity has told U.S. sisterhoods of the "absolute necessi.ty" of working to promote unity. "This task is urgent for those who are conse- crated to God . . . and even more urgent because of the immense possibilities in your work of educa- tion," wrote Augustin Cardinal Bea. His appeal was made in a' letter from the Vatican to the Sister Formati, on Conferen6e meeting at ,the 59th annual convention of the National Cath0fie Educational Association here ..... The Cardinal, stating that unity efforts re complex and requiring "long and profound" pre-/ paration, congratulated the NCEA on its choice of the convention theme, "Fostering the Ecumenical, Spirit." "I pray that you may firmly intend to be dedi- cated apostles in this mission," the Cardinal wrote, "that your teaching and most of all your example, prayer and sacrifice, will stir up many other ardent apostles for that unity so much needed by the Church, desired by Christ and expected by .the whole of humanity." The German.born Cardinal, a Jesuit, remarked that not all Catholics are concerned with unity. "Unfortunately," he said, "no one can boast that all Catholics are vividly con- scious of, and deeply pene- trated by the duty to be con- cerned with their brothers who are baptized in Christ, brothers even if separated from the Apostolic See." There are cbuntries today, he continued, where many Catholics are indifferent to- ward the growing movement to promote uni.ty of all Christian. "Some Catholic are sus- picious, even against, this movement," he admitted. "Such attitudes, it seems, stem from an inability to over- come deeply-rooted prejudices or old resentments. "There is hope, hnwever, that the coming eoancil will stimulate and awaken the consciences of everyone to a more zealou fervor and wider, truly more Catholic, openness of view." Cardinal Bed told the Sisters that almost every subject taught in schools presents op- portunities to deepen esteem and understanding of non- Catholic Christians. He also said it is clear that promotion of Christian unity cannot be improvised. "It re- quires from everybody a long and solid preparation," he said, ACCW Meeting ARCHBISHOP - ELECT James J.
