Don’t Distribute Pamphlets in Council Hall, Council Fathers Told

The ecumenical council’s general secretary told the council Fathers Oct. 3 that distribution of pamphlets among them was forbidden.

Archbishop Pericle Felici clarified his announcement the following day by saying that it was “very evident” that such distribution of pamphlets or other printed material is forbidden only in the council precincts.

Permission to circulate printed material in the council hall must be obtained from the council presidency, he said.

The Rome communist daily L’Unita said that the prohibition had been prompted by distribution of an anti-Franco pamphlet within the council hall by a Spanish bishop.

Father Cipriano Calderon, head of the council press office’s Spanish-language desk, denied that any such pamphlet had been distributed.
