"Pray. We will not say this time for precisely what rea- son," the Pope said in a Sunday talk. "We will leave it up to you to determine the particular in- tentions," he said. "The motives are not lacking: needs, fears, sorrows, misfor- tunes, sufferings; together with many hopes, good examples of generosity, patience, faith and love." * * dr French theologian Jean Cardi- nal Danielou warns that persons trying to diminish the authority of the pope in favor of the col- legial authority of the bishops run the risk of seriously dam- aging both. In L'Osservatore Romano-- Vatican City dally -- of July 11, Cardinal Danielou observed: "Some persons imprudently and in absolute contradiction to the acts of the (Second Vatican) Coun- cil are placing in opposition epis- copal collegiality and the per- sonal infallibility of the bishop of Rome." * * dr Through works of education and charity, the Catholic Church can help to bestow benefits on the people of Iraq, Pope Paul VI has declared. In accepting the credentials of Iraq's new ambassador to the Holy See, Ibrahim Abdul Rah- man A1-Dawood, the Pope said the Church holds out the "hand of friendship" to Iraq. * * dr The Vatican Secretariat for Promoting Christian Unity has delegated four official Catholic observers to the second assembly of the All-Africa Conference of Churches, to be held in Abidjan, Ivory Coast, from Sept. 1 to 12. Father Thomas Stransky, C.S.P., a staff member of the Unity Sec- refariat, will be one of the ob- servers. * dr , Pope Paul VI, receiving mem- bers of the council of the World Wildlife Fund and wishing them well "in your admirable efforts," remarked that although man "is the master of creation, man must not destroy it." *dr* Pope Paul VI donated $75,000 toward the construction of facil- ities for study, recreation, and retreats for students at the Na- tional University in Mexico City. * dr .

A statement issued by the Senate also appealed to "our brother priests who have left the active ministry.., to return to the priestly life and priestly work to which they have been cal- led by Christ." The statement, formulated with the unanimous consent of the Senate, was directed at the Wash- ingtoa Lay Association and the Center for Chrisitan Renewal, or- ganizations which have been at odds with archdiocesan officials here, particularly since last year's difficulties over Pope Paul's birth control encyclical, Humanae Vitae.

The Senate of Priests is a free- ly elected body representative of the 325 parish priests of the arch- diocese and 50 priest members of religious orders working here. "The Senate... expresses re- gret and sorrow at the actions of t he s e two organizations and strongly urges them to put aside their present divisive activities within the archdiocese, and to return to the spiritual unity of the Catholic Community under the leadership of our spiritual shep- herd," the statement said. "We make this statement in a spirit of authentic Christian con- cern and true charity, conscious of our responsibilities as priests of God's people and deeply con- cerned about the spiritual vitality of all our faithful," it continued.

The Pope made the comment in accepting the credentials of Kidane Miriam Halle, Ethiopia's new ambassador to the Holy See. He said the Holy See is "par- ticularly disposed" to have good relations with Ethiopia "because of the close kinship of Catholics of the Ethiopian rite with the Ethiopian Coptic church, which we hope may one day be in full communion with us." dr** Pope Paul VI has accused to- day's "controversial reformism" of superficiality. The Church is composed of im- perfect, limited men, of sinners," he said at his Wednesday general audience. "It is a sacred insti- tution, but it is constructed with human material, ever inadequate and frail." But in criticizing these frailities, public opinion has all too oftenbecome "superficial, ma- lignant and anxious to discover and create sensational impressions," he said. * dr dr John Cardinal Wright, prefect of the Congregation of the Cler- gy and former bishop of Pitts- burgh, has been named a member of the cardinalitial commisson for the sanctuaries of Pompei and Loreto.
