PAGE 8 THE GUARDIAN, AUGUST 6, 1982 Pope John Paul Asks Positive Elderly Role Vatican City (NC) -- Pope John Paul II reaffirmed the church's opposition to euthanasia and urged that society give the elderly a worthy "place and role in human society." In a letter to the World Conference on the Third Age, sponsored by the United Nations in Vienna, Austria, the Pope said the Catholic stand on euthanasia, con- tained in a 1980 declaration of the Vatican Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, is based on the Christian viewpoint of human life. "Life is a gift of God to men, created by love in his image and likeness," the French- language papal letter said. "This understanding of the sacred dignity of the human person leads one to give value to all stages of life," he added. "It is a question of con- sistency and justice." Pope John Paul quoted from the 1980 declaration, which said that "no one can in any way permit the killing of an innocent human being, whether a fetus or an embryo, an infant or an adult, an old person, or one suffering from an incurable disease, or a person who is dying." The Pope also repeated the declaration's warning that "it is very important to protect, at the moment of death, both the dignity of the human person and the Christian concept of life, against a technological attitude that [I threatens to become an abuse." Referring to preparatory documents for the conference, Pope John Paul backed several guiding principles expressed in them. He specifically cited four of the principles: attention to the elderly as such and to the quality of their lives, respect for the right of the elderly to remain active members of society, the desire to promote structures allowing each generation to make its con- tribution to society and an appeal to all to seek satisfactory solutions to the diverse problems facing the elderly. "A society truly aware of its duties toward the generations that have contributed to making the history of the nation must set up ap- propriate institutions" and assure those generations "a place and a role in the human community," the Pope said. "May the leaders of today's world work together for a true promotion of man and lead their peoples along that route," he added. The Holy See was represented at the Vienna conference by a five-man delegation, headed by Chilean Bishop Francisco Jose Cox Huneeus, secretary of the Pontifical Council for the Family. Msgr. Charles Fahey, director of the Third Age Center at Fordham University in New York, was also in the delegation. We're Sorry The picture of Joseph M. Brevvczynski, 85, of 233 F Street, North Little Rock (above), was inadvertently left out of the ad sponsored by Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus Bishop An- drew Bryne Assembly last week. Known as Mr. Knight of Arkansas, he was secretary of Little Rock Council 812 for 13 years and comptroller for the Assembly for 20 years. Now inactive due to ar- thritis problems, he has been a member of the Knights since 1935. The Guardian regrets the error. RECOVERING Monterey, Calif.
