Aurora. Women Urged To Bring Ideals To New Nations VATICAN CITY --(NC)-- His Holiness Pope John XXIII has urged Catholic women to bring Christian ideals into internation- al organizations and new na- tions. He was addressing about 2,000 representatives of the World Union of Catholic Women's Or- ganizat, ions. They c a m e to Rome for a congress of the un- ion, which has a membership of 36 million women. Common Ideal' The Pope-said: "When many traditional values are brought into dispute even in Christian and young nations search with enthusiasm for a common ideal, the firm persua- siveness of your words and the calm dignity of your attitude will give your sisters an attractive example leading to unity and ordering the whole of life." He noted that the women's role as the irreplaceable educa- tor of her own children is "your prime mission but not the only one." Program to Follow He declared: "Transmit the message of Our Lord J e s u s Christ in your lowly everyday life, exercise a Christian influ- ence in those places where you work, help instruct adults who too often ignore beneficial Cath- olic teaching in favor of t h e principles unleashed by atheis- tic propaganda, ~ind affirm the teachings of the Church in the g r e a t international organiza- tions in which you take part."
