A small papal flag was among many other flags also taken to the moon. The gesture of the Pope, a spokesman at the Apostolic Dele- gation here explained, is inten- ded to stress the spiritual signi- ficance of the history-making space mission. The dedicatory inscription of Pope Paul: For the glory of the name of God, who gives men such power, We pray and wish well for this wondrous endeavor. Pope Paul VI - A.D. 1969 Pope Paul hailed the planned lunar landing by three U. S as- tronauts as a "fabulous under- taking'' that will bring science fiction into the realm of reality. In his first Sunday talk this summer at his villahere southeast of Rome, the Pope told visRors that the moon expedition is more than just a "dream." "Science fiction, one mightsay, has become a reality," he said. "Admiration turns to reflection when one considers the organi- zation of brain power, of acti- vity, of instruments, of economic means, of all the studies, of the experiments and the attempts which this event demands," he said. "Science and technique mani- fest themselves in such an incom- parable and daring manner as to show the peak of their conquests andtopresage others," the Pope said, in what the imagination can- not even grasp. "Man, the creature of God, is more at the center of this under- taking than the moon itself. Man reveals himself to us as a giant, not in himself, but in his origin and in his destiny," he said. "Today we pray for him, for humanity, for the planners, and for the heroes of this fabulous undertaking." WOILD'S FINEST 1RADIOEAR / .EAmNG t LITTLE ROCK HEARING AID CENTER 110 W.
