A NEW CHANCE FOR UNITY IN EUROPE

Trade plan can lead to Christian solidarity

it ONLY the conviction of the urgency of the European Union in an age of continental community — only the realisation that the autonomy of the countries of Europe is equivalent to the suicide of Europe and its constituent countries—can provide the courage, the strength and the trust necessary for the building of the Common Market."

These words broadcast by Vatican Radio underline the importance to Christians of the present plans to approach European Unity along economic lines after the failure of political attempts.

Europe is still the direct heir of Christendom, and its drawing together again must enormously strengthen the free world just where the free world is weakest, namely. in a sense of common spiritual and moral ideal and solidarity.

The Prime Minister has shown himself eager to move along this path by working towards a partial free-trade area which would bring Britain closer to Western Europe, whose SixPower Common Market should finally result in a large measure of political, social as well as economic integration.

Because of the Christian importance of the whole conception, THE CATHOLTC HERALD has asked Mr. John Biggs-Davison, M.P., to explain in simple terms the main lines of these complex plans.
