TO CARDINAL WILLIAM CONWAY,

Friday, 9 January 1976

 

On the occasion of the gathering at Armagh on Saturday January tenth the Holy Father, Who continues to follow with deep anxiety and concern the serious turn of events in Northern Ireland, renews appeal to the whole population, of all religious denominations, to work for peace, in justice and brotherly love, so that they may reaffirm, in accordance with the Christian faith held in common, their respect for the sacred character of human life and may generously respond to the commandment of love received from the Divine Master.

While fervently imploring God Almighty to enlighten and strengthen all concerned in their determination to attain to that much desired peace, His Holiness gladly imparts to Your Eminence and to the whole community His Apostolic blessing.

Cardinal VILLOT
