Proof that the Holy Father's health gives no cause for added anxiety is seen in the amount of work which His Holiness manages to get through during his stay at his summer villa. Two large audiences, for
example, were held last week. At the second of these, on Saturday, the Pope, after having received Cardinals Pacelli, Rossi, Serafini, and Tisserant, and Mgr. Khouzam, Bishop of Thebes, gave an audience, among others, to a number of newlyordained priests about to return to their own countries. These included a group of English priests, former students of the Venerabile, for whom Pius Xl had special words.
In the course of his address the Pope, after expressing pleasure at greeting many newly-married couples who were present, turned to the English group. He gave to these young priests, he said, a particular welcome. Alter their formation, for the priesthood, in Rome, they were about to return to their own country, to their, and his, dear England. His Holiness recalled once more, with pleasure, that he had recently been able to participate, in the person of his representative, in the national rejoicing for the Coronation, in the joy of the people of a country which had carried its name to all parts of the world.
