There is a message from Cardinal Griffin. and articles by members of the Hierarchy and others.
THE BADGES Some 100,000 people in all parts of Britain are now " showing the pallium," for just over that number of Congress badges have now been distributed for sale and it is thought that the vast majority have already been sold.
Even so, this is only half-way towards the •target of 200,000. and the Congress committee urge that every effort should be made in the next few weeks to ensure that all are sold and the public made fully aware of the Congress by this means.
The committee again emphasises that the tickets for the unreserved seats for the great Congress Rally at Wembley can only be obtained through the parochial representatives. This rally will be an all-ticket affair and there will he no chance of admission for those who have not either become Congress members or obtained their tickets for unreserved seats through their parochial representatives.
