Im- mediately on the conclusion of the hymn, he pronounced the formula declaring the Pope said that the ceremony underscored "the holiness of the Church of Christ, which is holy by reason of its founder who was its origin and ex- ample; holy by reason of the instruments it uses to mold the souls of its children, and by reason of grace and the sacra- ments and the doctrine ac- cepted from Christ and care- Then the Pope switched to ltalian so he could be better understood by those in the ba- silica and "all those who are following this ceremony over the radio."

But, as you can see, his voice is strong and his thoughts are clear." "A little while ago," he added, "I read that a man over 60 begins to get old. Now I have been over 60 more than 20 years." Pope John said the ecu- menical council's first session was a display of the Church's unity and asked for contin- ued prayers for the council's success. He repeated his hope that it will end by Christmas, 1963, and stated: "I hope I will live to see the end of the council. But if I do not, then I hope that God will keep a good place for me." He said it is possible "The Pope will still be with us" a year from now. "But if I am not. there will surely be an- other Pope," he concluded. ld Headl!nes. a_._nd Deadhnes: M---00riner II Historic Feat By George Kramer, PkD. The most sensational bit of news this week concerns a wide-ranging traveler called Mariner II. It is literally out of this world--way, way out, some 25 million miles. The trajectory course traveled is more than 180 million miles. Mariner II is st:ll talking back to earth as it continues its plunge toward Venus, one- third the distance from the earth to the sun, and it is hoped it will continue to send back messages at noon today or shortly thereafter as it flies past its target at a distance of about 21,000 miles. When the 446-pound instrn- meet-laden U.S. spacecraft was launched August 27 oll its 10g-day journey, the pur- pose was to explore the cloud-covered surface of the planet Venus and possibly to determine if life as we know it is possible there. At deadline there is some doubt that this can be done, because the spaceship is over- heating, leading scientists to believe that the surface tem- perature of Venus may be some 400 degrees Fahrenheit, If everything goes well, how- ever, Caltech's Jet Propulsion Laboratory at Pasadena, which has been receiving Mariner II signals, will feed the space- craft's "voice" to TV and radio networks during pro- grams scheduled to begin at 11 a.m. PST today (Friday). Regardless of what hap. pens, the fly-by exploration of Mariner II will have been a historic feat. Already it has established a distance record for trans- mitting scientific data, al- though months may be re- (Continued on Page 5) Cardinal Asks 'Peace of Christ' --Virginia Broderick the NCWC Department of Immi,gration noted in its annual report. The reportsigned by the department's episcopal chairman, the Most Reverend Thomas A. Connolly, Archbishop of Seattlesaid that refugees aided dur- ing the year included "Chinese in Hong Kong, Koreans, natives of the United Arab Republic and countries of Asia, Cuba, Haiti, the Dominican Repub- lic and certain countries of Latin America" in ad- dition to escapes from Communist rule. Annual reports of departments and bureaus of the National Catholic Welfare Conference sent to all the U.S. Bishops show that the concerns of U.S. Catholics cov- ered such matters as interna- tional relief, aid to education, the Second Vatican Council, in- creased study and practice of the Church's social doctrines, assistance to Latin America, refugee aid and foreign mis- sionary work. Archbishop Connolly's report pointed out that immigration legislation reached an all-time low during the year despite ef- forts by private agencies and some Congressmen, but it praised the "excellent coopera- tion the department received generally from our own gov- ernment officials, particularly in relation to persons in the service of the Church." It singled out the U.S. De- partment of State and the Im- migration Service for their help "in making it possible for us to serve the Diocese of Miami (where many refugees from the Cuban regime of Marxist Premier Fidel Castro are living) in obtaining Span- ish-born teaching Sisters for the schools." The department expressed its "great sorrow" at the death on April 2 of its former episcopal chairman, Bishop Joseph M. Gilmore of Helena, Mont. Noting the continuing expan- sion of its work, the depa/'t- ment reported it handled 45,- 310 c a s e s involving 51,052 people during the year. These included 4,960 cases entailing assistance to bishops, priests; Sisters, seminarians and other persons in religious life, Among other departments re- porting were: Catholic Relief Services -- National Catholic Welfare Conference, The NCWC Foreign Visitors' Office, The Bureau of Information, The NCWC Office for United Na- tions Affairs, The National Catholic Apostleshio of the Sea Conference, The Catholic Com- mittee for Refugee.4, The Na- tional Office for Decent Litera- ture, The Military Ordlinariate, The American Board of Catho- lic Missions, The Education Department, Catholic Youth Federation--both Teenage and Young Adult Sections, The Na- tional C o u n c i t of Catholic Women, The National Catholic Community Service, The Bish- ops' Committee of the Con- fraternity of Christian Doctrine.

Bishop Walter W. Curtis of Bridgeport, Conn., will preach the sermon. ing God freely, in the internal peace of each nation, without which peace among nations cannot exist." The Polish Cardinal said that it is therefore necessary that there be "a growth in religious feelings and a decrease in world- ly indifference, in forgetfulness of the presence of God and in practical materialism in everyday life." The hopes of the nations, he said, are focused on the success of the council. "The Holy Spirit will' provide," he said, "that, in the future as in the past 20 centuries, Rome will bring life, charity and truth to the world on the bark of Peter." The Polish Primate said that the faithful of Poland "have knelt before Our Lady of Czestochowa night and day in prayer, imploring divine help for the Holy Father (His Holiness Pope John XXIll) and for the success of the council through the assistance of the Holy Spirit." "With the help of God," he concluded, "we will return in the fall of the coming year m continue the work c4 the couacil." The Cardinal from Communist-ruled Poland also called for religious freedom in all countries. Cardinal Wyszynski spoke during a Mass offered on the feast of the Immaculate Conception December 8 in his titular church of St. Mary in Trastevere before leaving Rome to return to Poland. Present at the Mass were the 25 Polish bishops who attended the Second Vatican Council's first session with him, the students and-faculty of the Pontifical Polish College in Rome and members of this city's Polish community. We [council Fathers] are returning to our countries com- forted in spiritby what we have seen and heard in the Vatican basilica," he said, "Today," he said. "we are faced with two problems of great urgency: the peace of Christ in the kingdom of Christ. and social charity, that all good things may be distributed fairly among all the children of the earth, particularly among those who cannot provide themselves with their own needs."
