"Never again will work be superior to the worker, never again will work be against the worker; but always work will be for the worker, work will be in the service of man, of every man and of all of man," he declared. He told the ILO delegates that they must support the development "a real international law of la- bor" that is "not only theoretical but practical." Warning of the dangers of con- temporary industrial society and the frequent depersonalization in- volved in modern technological de- velopments, the Pope said that man must always remain the mas- ter of technology "and dominate its evolution." 00l00ontas, II Waln00,t Ridge II Church & Shopper's Guide!

And he urged the ILO to pro- tect man against himself: "It is man that you must pro- tect, man carried away by the formidable force which he un- leashes and as it were, swallowed up by the gigantic progress of his work, man swept along by the ir- resistible current of his inven- tions and, as it were, stunned by the growing contrast between the prodigious increase of the goods at his disposal, and their distribution, so easily made un- justly, between men and between peoples." Pope Paul told the ILO that its vocation is to intervene and to supply remedies for labor con- flicts, to give aid to victims, work out new protection against new dangers, improve the conditions of workers, "struggle against seg- regation which gives birth to in- feriority for whatsoever motive, whether slavery, caste, race, religion or class." He praised the "constant dia- logue" method of the ILO in bring- ing together the forces at work in the "dynamics of modern la- bor." He said this method is "well worthy to replace for good that concept which unfortunately dominated our epoch, emphasizing efficiency as sought through agi- tations which too often gave rise to new sufferings and ruins, thus risking the annulmeni rather than the consolidation of the re- sults obtained at the price of sometimes dramatic struggles." Labor conflicts, he continued, cannot be remedied either by artificially imposed solutions that fraudulently deprive the worker and the whole social community of their freedom or by solutions that result from the "determinism of economic factors." Quoting the words of the first ILO director-general, Albert Tho- mas, Pope Paul said: "The social factor must overcome the eco- nomic factor." The world of tomorrow will be built up by the youth of today, he said, and then he told the ILO that it is up to it to prepare them for this. He explained that he had come to the ILO conference to give it his encouragement and hisagree- ment and to invite it to persevere in its mission of justice and peace and to assure it of his sincere fellowship. In the peaceful combat in the "cause of man," Pope Paul promised, "the disciples of Christ intend to take part with all their heart." Although the Pope's talk to the ILO was considered an important event, his visit to the very modern ecumenical center of the WCC -- described as a "visit of Christian fellowship" by the WCC --was the center of most of the attention here. In his address of welcome in the center's conference hall, the Ray. Dr. Eugene Carson Blake, an American Presbyterian and the WCC's general secretary, told the Pope that his coming there signified "the growth of the he was praying for an end of di- vided Christianity, but added the time is not ripe for the Catholic Church to become a member of the WCC. After raising the question of whether the Catholic Church should become a member of the WCC, Pope Paul declared: "in fraternal frankness, we do not consider that the question of membership of the Catholic Church in the World Council is so ma- ture that a positive answer could or should be given." The Pope said the question "contains serious theological and pastoral implications. It thus requires a profound study and commits us to a way that honesty recognizes could be long and difficult." The Pontiff praised the WCC as a "marvelous movement" and between the Catholic the WCC. Christ's will for unity for Church, as well as "the need of men who believe in and have been redeeme he continued, "keep our constant tension of humi regret for the present among the followers of of a hope-filled desire for restoration of unity among Christians." As Dr. Blake had done him, Pope Paul also cited the efforts of the two religious ies, and expressed his found appreciation meat of these relations the World Council and the lic Church, two bodies very different armature collaboration has proved to fruitful." - ...........
