First, the Pope broadcast from his summer home at Castelgandolfo to the Congress of Swiss Catholic Associations in Lucerne. (Page 5).
In his second speech, broadcast to the 73rd Catholic Rally at Bochum, in the Ruhr district of Germany, the Pope called upon Germans to put into practice Catholic social doctrine. (Below).
