Eucharistic Congress in city Tito held

An Italian diocese that almost came under Communist rule just after the war held a Eucharistic Congress last week-end to celebrate its 200th anniversary. It is the Gorizia diocese, on Italy's border with Yugoslavia.

Much of it, including the city of Gorizia itself, was occupied by Tito's troops in the last days of the war, and claimed by him with the port of Trieste when it ended.

Cardinal Tisserant. Dean of the Sacred College, attended the congress and celebrated Pontifical High Mass in the Church of the Sacred Heart in Gorizia.
