*Strasbourg/CoE/Angelo Marcopolo/- US Multinational Media  CNN's Interrogation, at the Eve of German Chancelor  Angie Merkel's, particularly Interesting Speech and Debate with CoE's MEPs, at its Parliamentary Assembly Today in Strasbourg, both as President-in-office of its Committee of Ministers on 2021, more than 15 Years Chancelor (2005-2021), and Top European Leader, at the Head of the Most Populated and Rich EU Country, was : - "As What Kind of Chancelor will she go down in History ?"

    -If it's well Known that her Mentor, former Long Time Chancelor, Helmut Kohl, was finally called that of "ReUnification", (of Germany and Europe), on the contrary, Merkel's final denomination does not yet seem equaly Obvious, unless one Associates her Legacy's 2 main Characteristics : Resiliency and Consciousness, (judging also from what was said at the CoE Today : See Infra).

Indeed, she Faced some among the Hardest Challenges in EU's History, (including, f.ex., Turkey's Controversial and UnPopular EU Bid, with "No" Votes to EU-Referenda, an "€uro"-Crisis, Bloody Ukranian Division of great-Europe, "Annus Horribilis" with Islamist Terrorism cowardly targetting Civilian People, sudden "Tsunami" of more than 1,6 Millions of Mass Irregular Asylum Seekers tresspassing into EU's Borders via Turkish Smugglers, "BREXIT", Neighbouring Arab Countries' Socio-Political UnRest, UnKnown Origin's Deadly Virus' Pandemic putting Europe at its EpiCenter, etc+, (as if some Hostile "PTB", Jealous of Europe's immense Potential, particularly after its ReUnification, had lashed out a Series of Covert but Horrible Attacks, seeking to Undermine it)...

But, Merkel's Europe, neverttheless, in one way or another, at least until now, Succeeded, more or less, to Bypass and Overcome, progressively, those Exceptional Hardships, (the Virus' Global Epidemic being Still at the Center of her Attention, Nowadays, with an UnExpected "3rd Wave", etc), and, now Even Dares Launch an Ambitious, and potentialy Far-Reahing Top-Level Conference "on Europe's Future" (2021-2023) !

+ And that, almost Always with a constant, elementary "Consciousness" of the Basic Values and Principles of the Council of Europe, which accepted to enTrust a Post-Holocaust Germany, as a fully-fledged CoE Member Country, already since 70 Years Ago, as its Historic Leader Adenauer had stressed, attributing an Importance Twice reminded by Angie Merkel Today, at the Conclusion of Both het mainstream Speech, and of her Numerous Replies to a Record-High Number of MEPs' Questions, Later this Noon.

However, from CoE's Longer and Wider alleged "Success Story", with its 47 Member States, (Turkey and Russia included), as Merkel evoked it Today, mainly on its Core Issues of Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law, Currently, there is, at least 1 Key Area, where that PanEuropean Mechanism of Strasbourg does Not Yet work as Efficiently as it Should, and this, obviously, concerns the unacceptable Obstacles for Implementation of ECHR's Judgements by some Condemned States, she Rightfuly Criticized..., (Urging CoE's Parliamentary Assembly, and CoE's Committee of Ministers to Work in Cooperation on that problem, particularly through their "New -Joint- Mechanism", just set up : Comp, inter alia, also, at: ...., etc).

- Such Vital Needs to Respect Basic Principles, whenever dealing with Important concrete Issues, are present also, f.ex., in the Exceptional Top Meeting of UN Security Council's 5 Permanent Members, (where Germany notoriously uses, recently, to cooperate mainly Together with Fellow EU Member France), for the current perspectives to resolve the Cyprus' Geo-Political and Human Rights' Problem, Next Week at nearby Switzerland, hopefuly in the presence of an "EU Observer", (as, Already since 1997, at Montreux : See Exclusive INTW that we Published, then, at "MPAgency", etc), Merkel replied to a Question by the Representative of the "Euro-Left" Group, MEP and former Foreign Minister of Greece, Georges Katrougalos, (who Also reminded the Fact that "Cyprus is an EU Member Country still Facing illegal Foreign Military Invasion and Occupation" of a big part of its Territory, in Addition to Other Violations, etc) :

- Indeed, currently, "We (i.e. German Presidency of the CoE) are in the process of "Knailing Down UNO's relevant Resolutions" on Cyprus' Issue, in order "to Talk with the Turkish President (Erdogan)" and others, Merkel Replied Today Cyprus, in substance, apparently Focusing on the Essentials.

+  Otherwise, Replying to anOther Question, by a UK Conservative MEP, about -"Which is the Greater Danger in the World Nowadays ?", she Surprized by denouncing a  "Stricking Trend, right Now", where, "repetedly", "National Institutions" seek to "Teach Lessons", often with "Terrible Events", whenever "International Institutions have been Weakened", Leaving withOut a possibility to Find another Solution, f.ex., via the UNO (etc), when People no more believe in Multilateralism, and, in consequence, canNot Find Diplomatic Solutions, But Risk to abuse of Harsh Language, and/or Provocative Actions", pushing, "Potentialy, to Military Conflict", she Warned.

=> Therefore, Angie Merkel, in general, Advised to be "Very Careful" inside "International Organisations" nowadays, "Because", Otherwise, "UnIntentional Crisis can Erupt". So that, "I am for Diplomatic Talks, as long as they are Not Shooting to Each Other !'" she concluded, smiling...

---------------------------

- Meanwhile, a Strange Fact was that, Curiously, the Controversial and Topical Issue of the so-called "Vaccination Passports" (or "Certificates"), allegedly seeked by some for Touristic Economy interests, which are, notoriously, Backed by many inside the EU in Brussels, But, on the Contrary, Widely Rejected, by Others, at the CoE in Strasbourg, on Bio-Ethical or Public Health grounds, (See : .., and UpDate : .... etc), initialy Risked to be Neglected or even Forgoten in This landmark Debate, Today, Despite its Huge and Manifold Importance !...

=> Indeed, soon After "Eurofora" earlier Selected, picked up, Further Developed, and Beefed up, among Our Publications (See : ..., etc), one of the Previous Critical Remarks made at CoE Assembly by CoE's Secretary General, Marija Buric, on 2021, (See : ....), Nowadays, PACE Decided to Publish also a Report on that Same Issue, as well as a COE SG's UpDated Text, and Even to Place them, in its Official Agenda, just In Front of Merkel's Intervention Today, thereby underlying the Importance that CoE gives to the above-mentioned Issue. concerning the Fact that Any, eventual, EU-endorsed move on the so-called "Vaccination Certificates>> must Respect Both Human Rights, Democracy and Rule of Law, as well as Bio-Ethics, etc.

Nevertheless, Merkel surprizingly, appeared to Avoid, several times, to have to Reply to that particular kind of Questions, Today, to the point that PACE's President Daems, Head of Liberals, from Belgium, felt Obliged to repeatedly Remind to the German Chancelor,  that MEPs Expected to hear her Views, also as the current CoE's President-in-office, on that "Hot" and Topical Issue too...

>>> When Angie Merkel finaly Replied on that point, it immediately became obvious that she was quite Reserved on the Substance of an Issue More Complicated than what it seemed at First Sight :

- Skiping the "Technical", as she called them, issues about EU's foreseeen Vaccination Certificates, (i.e., mainly, a possibility for National Certificates, with an EU Interface making them Visible also at a European level, which have Already been almost Decided by the EU), it still Remains to Deal with, perhaps, the Most Important Issue : that of "Legal Rights" which Might result from such Future Documents, and on which, "the Discussion is just Starting", as pointed out.

*** Describing that Current "Discussion", "on How to Treat People and Citizens, with regard to  Vaccination, ... even in the Midst of the Pandemic", as "Important" and "very Exciting", Merkel Only Revealed Today that a Main Problem here exists from the point of view of the "Safety" of the "People", where might be a "Danger" regarding this Virus :

 - Indeed, "I want to make 1 Point: we will also have to look at this very much from the point of view of Mutations, because .... whenever mutations occur, there is of course the Danger - see the Brazilian mutant - that Vaccinated people are Perhaps Not as Safe from the New Mutations. That Will Occupy us for Many Years to come", Merkel Warned.

+ But, by Limiting Nowadays her Critical Observation Only to that "1 Point", about Alleged "Mutations" reportedly Emerging, much Later-on, Just from Some Parts of the World, (mainly Related to the UK : UK itself, Brittany Neighbouring French Region, nearby Belgium, India, etc), at certain particular Moments, (f.ex. Elections in Brasil 2021, France : Regions on 2021 + President on 2022, Germany : Parliamentary 2021, India : 2021 + 2022, etc),

that Merkel's sole Claim Obviously Leaves an open Question-Mark on the Timing of that "3rd Wave" of Deadly Virus' Incidents, does Not Explain at all such a Massive ReBount of the Pandemic throughout almost All the World then, and Curiously Skips an UnExpected, But Radical Particularity of the First                                                                                                                                                                                                                      alleged Anti-COVIT so-called "Vaccines" currently available : The UnPrecedented in Human History Fact that, Contrary to All "Classical" Vaccins, those Controversial "ANR"-Technology Tools Initialy picked and Funded by ....Bill Gates, already as Early as Since 2019, (i.e., when this 2020-2021 "COVIT" Pandemic wasN't yet Known !), are Not Sure at all to Protect Other People (around the "Vaccinated") from a possible Further Spread of Infections and Deaths !...

=> In other words, an UnPrecedented Risk appeared, with those Controversial Anti-"COVID" Pseudo-"Vaccines", (that Critics Refuse to Call "Vaccines", Because they do Not Guarantee Immunity of All those "Vaccinated", But Only the Absence of Symptomes, keeping them "Asymptomatic", for an UnKnown yet Period of Time) : I.e. the so-called "Vaccinated" Individuals may Appear, to the Eyes of Other, uninformed People, as if they might have become "Healthy" and "Immune" vis a vis the Virus, (while, in Fact, they are Now Only "Asymptomatic", for UnDeterminet yet Time). Such False Appearances, giving the Misleading Impression of Cured Indivuals, who have Recoversd for a while, (sa Precise term would be : Remission or Suspencion of Symptoms for an Undetermined Laps of Time), cannot but Risk to Provoke Confusion, Misunderstandings, qui-pro quo, Irresponsible Lowering or even Abandoning of Health Protections, etc., Even if Deadly Virus' "Super Spreaders" may be still                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                     strolling around, and "Jombie" Killers Hidden among                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                various Controversial so-called "Vaccinated" individuals....

=> Indeed, several Critics Even Refused to Name such Controversial Novel Tools as "Vaccines", Because they do Not yet Guarantee to Stop Spreading the Virus to Other People, (Comp. Supra), and Even the Duration of any Protection to the "Vaccinated" Individuals is Not Yet Known !  Classic Vaccines' Historic Inventor "Pasteur would be Spinning in his Grave !", Denounced, f.ex., Experienced French Professor Perronne, Head of Infectiology in Paris' Hospitals (12/2020)... Observing the Facts that such Tools rather Affect the Human Genome, (via the RNA), and often seek to "UpDate" it, they considered them as a kind of "Gene Therapy" Tools, But "No Vaccines"....

It concerns, Mainly, those 2 Controversial "RNA" Tools that ..."Microsoft"'s Billionaire Gates had reportedly Chosen to Back, (with about 450 Millions $ Each), Already Since ...2019 (i.e. Before the current Virus' Epidemc of 2020-2021 !) :  i.e. (1) a Turkish SME from Iskinderum (Where Armenian, Greek and Arab Christian Refugees were anew Persecututed and their Family Homes Usurpated by another Turkish Military Invasion and Occupation, Since the NAZI/Fascism Period of 1939, becoming, nowadays, the SeaPort for Extremist Islamist Foreign Armed Gangs at nearby "Idlib" Region of Syria, controled by Turkey's troops) , and (2) an initialy US Pentagon-funded Military "Bio-Warfare" similar Project, (Nowadays Backed also by Controversial Technocrat Dr. Fauci, a HIV-Vaccine Researcher during 45 Years, who Never Found Any Yet !), which, curiously, Rushed to Boost "RNA" Tools against the Virus as Early as Since mid-January 2020 (sic !), profitting from Relations with a Greek ("Socialist") and an Armenian Trade CEOs in USA Old and New, Start-up Compagnies "PFIZER" and "MODERNA", thanks to Money Advanced by Trump, in a Desperate Attempt to Accelerate Anti-Virus' Vaccines before the Nov. 3 Elections, (+Added to Establishment Medias' Pub, for Fast and Easy Gains of Billions $ at Wall Street a.o. Stock Markets). PFIZER's Turkish pick was the Worst : It initialy attempted to almost Totaly Hide that Spread Risk, Denounced by "Eurofora", has a Notorious Handicap of ... -75% Farehneit in the Cold, (while "MODERNA" can be kept in a normal Fridge), Played "Last-Minute" Games with its alleged "Efficiency" Numbers, looked Glad when they heard about Deadly "Mutations", (as critical Professor Perronne had Guessed, Warning of Risks to impose frequent "UpDates" on such "Gene Therapy" RNA Tools, apparently this serving as Pretext for being ..."Fired" for his Criticism : Comp. Supra). + A ..."Chimpanzee" RNA - DNA Tool (with Similar Problems) was Added by "Astrazeneka"'s UK-Sweden Company, (Countries with a notorious lot of Infections and Deaths by the Virus), as a kind of "Poor Guy"'s supplement, But its Various Denounced Side-Effects recently brought it Down...

+ A Surprizing, AbNatural Fact is that, During a Too Long Time, practicaly No Other Vaccines became Available, Until Now : Not Any European Vaccine (Not Even 1 !). Not Any "Natural" or "Classical" Vaccine, (f.ex. a Weakened Virus, etc), Similar to those used by Pasteur... From December 2020 up to April 2021, Nothing else than RNA/DNA-related Gene-Manip Tools, (Perhaps, Later-on, some Gene-Manip. too, "Double Virus' Vectors" : 2 Virus used to Penetrate into the Genome of a Cell, etc, i.e. anOther "Novel" Tool which ByPasses the Natural Human Immunity System, Instead of simply Stimulating it... Is All that really Necessary, and Nothing Else couldN't work ? Out of, reportedly, some 180 Various Possible Candidate Vaccines, already Declared to the WHO,  Why it's ONLY a Handfull that most People know, through Establishment's Medias, (and All of them of a Similar Controversial and Dangerous Kind) ?...

    - "Eurofora" has Clearly Warned about such UnPrecedented Risks, and, in particular, for an UnControled Spread of Infections by Individuals giving a False Impression to have become "Immune", by such Cotroversial pseudo-"Vaccinations", But, in Fact, Still Remaining Super-Spreaders of the Deadly Virus, (Already as Early as at the Eve of EU's 12/2020 Decisions to Conditionaly Authorize such Controversial "Vaccinations", during the Video-Press-Briefing on a forthcoming EU Heads of State/Government in Brussels,                                                                       attended by more than 300 Journalists, and Added to a relevant INTW of EU Commission's Health Spokesman).

+ Subsequently, it's Even Ursula von der Leyen, the President of EU Commission herself, who Twice evocked this Problem during her Joint Press Conferences with EU Council's President, Michel, in Brussels. Significantly, Both these References were made, precisely, on the occasion of the so-called "Vaccination Certificates", (in order to Point at One among the UnExpected Problems some of them sraised : Comp. Supra).

++ Moreover, since January 2021, WHO's Chief, Tedros Ghebreyesus, in Conclusion of his Speech at CoE's Assembly in Strasbourg, Warned that the current "Vaccines" do Not Stop Infections from Spreading, (Comp. Supra), Urging, therefore, to take Public Health Protection Measures, (as "Eurofora" had Warned, Already since Early December 2020, see Ibid)... It's a Pity that he was, Exceptionaly, Deprived of a Debate with MEPs and/or Journalists, then, on that Key New Point !

+++ So that, Nowadays, a Paradox emerges : There is a Growing Impression that, given the Astonishing Facts, More some Countries use of those Controversial so-called, novel tool "Vaccines", (Comp. Supra), ...More  (and Not Less !)- Infections and Deaths than before Arrive... Indeed, many Recent Graphics appear Stunning : It all Looks as if that "3rd Wave" of the Virus was  somehow Linked to at least Some among those Controversial, Novel Tools, so-called Pseudo--"Vaccines" (or to the Way they are currently MissUsed)... F.ex., inter alia, Look at Germany's Situation since March 2021, (compared to the 1st Wave) ; at Brazil Nowadays, (After a Slow but Steady Amelioration Earlier) ; that Sudden Monstruous "3rd Wave" just arrived in India ; the unexplained Sequence of events Nowadays sin Chile, (etc)...

____________________________________________

Last, but not least :

 

- Among all those Tragic Facts, Angie Merkel, nevertheless, was Also given an UnExpected Chance to deal Even with some much more Amusing Issues, able to Stimulate the Sense of Humour, Despite all that...

- Indeed, the German Chancelor (and CoE's President-in-office) was Questioned, by an Important Lady MEP, Head of a Big National Delegation, about her Advise on How to Address the Problem of Women Promotion in Jobs of important Responsibility, Both in the Member States and at the CoE, EU, etc., given the well-known Problem, (usualy called "the Glass Ceiling"), which often Excludes Ladies from High-Standing Posts.

Obviously, there was Not Any Problem for Merkel to Expand on one of her Favorite and well-known General Issues.

In Fact, the real Problem was on the concrete Context of the particular circumstances :

- (1) Nicole Trisse, Head of the French Delegation, Liberal MEP, raised the Question..

- (2) Angie Merkel, CoE President-in-office, CDU MEP, German Chancelor, received the query for Answer.

- (3) Marija Buric, CoE's Secretary General was Officialy Present for those events.

- (4) Despina Hatzivassiliou, CoE Assembly's new CEO, was acting after her 1/2091 Brillant Election with a Record-High Number of  Votes.

- (5) Rik Daems, PACE President, Head of Liberals, from Belgium.


=> In other words = 4 Women + 1 Man...! Not what to make a fuss...

 +It inevitably Reminds Finland, whee the f. Head of the Liberal Party, initialy met by "Eurofora" at a CoE's Top Meeting in Budapest (Hungary), after becoming, the Next Year at Helsinki, the opposition's Candidate to the Presidential Election facing Halonen, (that we met, both Before and Afterwards in Strasbourg), But losing his bid, became Famous by Bitterly commenting that such Facts underline "that, Nowadays, Men have become <<an Espece en voie de Disparition !>> (sic)

 

 - However, "Revanche" on 2020 : Paris' Socialist Mayor Hidalgo is hit by a Financial Sanction for having Appointed much More Women Directors, than Men (up to 60%-40%).,., against the Equality of Sexes' Principle.

Benedict's "Source" to revitalize Europe : - "The World needs Hope", Pope says, calling to relaunch E.U. via Human Rights !

Paris - Lourdes - Strasbourg : 12 - 17 September 2008.

The vital need to re-launch Europe can be succesfully met by defending fundamental Human Rights of the People, said Pope Benedict XVI in his 1st speech in France, at his meeting with President Nicolas Sarkozy, who currently chairs the EU.

Sarkozy replied by welcoming Christian and other religions' contribution to indispensable Public Debates on crucial issues which affect Human Dignity, Europe, even Humankind, as BioGenetics.

- "When Europeans will see and personally experience that the inalienable Rights of the Human Person .., those of their free Education, their Family life, their Work, ..their Religious Rights, ..are respected and promoted, then, these Europeans will fully understand the greatness of the European construction and will be actively involved in it", Benedict XVI stressed.

- "It's important that during France's EU Presidency, there is, indeed, a desire for the Church to contribute to protect Human Person's integrity, and I think that there is also a growing Conscience, beyond any polemics, to defend Human Rights, and, thus, contribute to ensure respect for Human Dignity", added to "EuroFora" the Pope's Spokesman, Vatican's Press Director Federico Lombardi.

- "Nobody really told us here that Lisbon Treaty was good for this or that reason to the People. They only told us that we "had" to ratify it, and tried to scare us, but failed", said 2 Irish pilgrims to "EuroFora", after 2 Majority Abstentions in 1999 and 2004 EU Elections and 3 "NO" to Referenda in France and the Netherlands in 2005, followed by the Irish "No" in 2008, during a Decade of EU Crisis since the controversial Turkey EU- bid (1999-2008).

More than .."224 cases of Murders, Torture, "Disappearancies" or Destructions" by "agents of Turkish Security forces", where all those responsible for so heavy Crimes still remain scandalously unpunished, despite regular condemnations of Ankara by Strasbourg''s European Court of Human Rights from 1996 to 2008, were examined the same week by CoE's Ministers, who decided to launch a fresh call "urging" the Turkish Authorities to end this dangerous "virtual Impunity" of criminals, without comparison to European countries.

- "Why not Ukraine, instead of Turkey ?", asked EuroFora a Journalist from "Kiev : the city where it's enough to cross the streets in order to realize that it's a European town", as Sarkozy recently said, before solemnly declaring this week, together with Ukranian President Jushenko and EU Commission's chair Baroso, EU's "recognition that Ukraine is a fully European Country, linked to Europe by culture and History".

dsc00941_400



Europe's "Christian roots" and Values, with "openess and mutual respect" to other cultures and beliefs, were highlighted by Sarkozy in harmony with Benedict XVI.

The Human person should be protected "from his inception until his natural death", added the Pope, faithful to BioEthic principles defended by his predecessor and collaborator, John Paul II, of topical importance in France, Europe and the World today, as Sarkozy announced :

- "Fast and important progres in Genetic Science and procreation raise delicate BioEthical Questions to our Democracies", which "involve our view of Humans and Life, and can lead to Social Mutations. That's why they cannot remain only a business of experts", hestressed.

- "It's Politician's responsibility to set a proper framework for such Public Debates", as "France will do on BioEthics in 2009". "Religious and Philosophic traditions must take part, with their ideas and centuries' long experience : A positive Laicity is an open invitation to Dialogue", he said.

- "France engaged in Europe at another Debate on how to make Financial Capitalism more moral", and the "Social doctrine of the Church fits well what is at stake in modern Globalized Economy"

- "But, a "Real Dialogue is not for an elite of a Globalized world : It penetrates deep into the People : That's why Churches should actively participate : .. It's bringing New Oxygen to Public Debates", stressed Sarkozy.

- "Democracy must not be cut off Reason", which is "compatible with Faith", thanks to "the meeting between Christianism and Greek philosophy ", he added, referring to Pope's views. "It means to advance with logic arguments, search what's best and respect common principles of thinking :... It's an everyday need for Public Administration and the Political Debate", he added.
----------------------------
Pope Benedict's 1st visit to France looked like the start of a brillant, manifold demonstration that this was well-founded and could become true in the lives of the People : After its Theoretical foundations unfolded at a "speech to the world of Culture", inaugurating Bernadins' cultural centre, and its dogmatic instrument shaped at an address to the Clergy in the Historic Notre Dame' Cathedral, he started to resolutely reach out to the People :

dsc01185_400



The move went upwards like Bach's music : Begining with a call to more than fifteen thousand enthousiastic Youngsters gathered at Notre Dame's parvis with overnight celebrations, it gained strength in an impressive open-air Mass at Paris'central Invalides'area facing Alexander III's bridge, attended by more than 150.000 people, French Prime Minister Fillon, many Ministers, Foreign Ambassadors, etc, and culminated in a series of pan-European Mega-meetings at Lourdes 150th anniversary, together with all French Bishops, EU Commission's vice-Chairman Barrot, and some 200.000 enthousiastic People from all over Europe and beyond : After a Sea of Lights astonishingly braved Saturday Night's rain, an open-air mass at riverside fields among Pyrenees' Mountains Sunday Morning, was followed on Monday by a Sea of "Compassion" to those facing Health or Life threats, surrounded by an endless gathering of People, whose gigantic dimensions obviously surprised the organisers..

Meanwhile, Benedict had the occasion to speak to the French Priests at Notre Dame of Paris, and with the Bishops at Lourdes, where they prepare a crucial November plenary meeting, due to take important decisions on imminent EU debates and choices about Europe's identity, BioEthics, etc.
-------
- "A new way of thinking about Laicity has become necessary", agreed the Pope with President Sarkozy at Elysee. While keeping the "distinction between Politics and Religion, to guarantee Citizens' Liberty", "religion is important for shaping Consciousness and contributing, together with others, to create a basic Ethical Consensus in society".

- "Searching Essential realities", (as "God" for christians), needs "Speech : "Logos" in greek, i.e. Reason", "able to shape a Community","with creative work transforming Human History". But "Dialogue" is instrumental for "Reason", because it's the way to "search" for Truth", in "Liberty", according to Greek Platonic Philosophy, with Socrates' dialectics. "Reason" implies "Spirit and Liberty", hence the polyphonic "Music" of "Dialogue", in a responsible, "well balanced" way, to avoid "destruction".

Starting with a "Dialogue between christians and intellectual or artistic movements" highlighted at Bernardins' Cultural Center. with former Presidents Chirac and Giscard d'Estain, UNESCO's chair Anastassopoulos, etc., as well as representatives of Muslim Communities, (including a separate Turkish), after contacts with Jews at Vatican's Embassy, the Pope turned towards the People :

To French Priests : "Church built on the rock" !

dsc01076_400


- Speaking to thousands of French Priests at Notre Dame's Cathedral, Benedict highlighted a solid "Church built on the Rock" of conscious and active persons, transmitting "a lively, energetic and sharp" "God's Speech, actively working on Human History".

"Praying together" with "representatives of Christian Churches and ecclesiastic communities", (as Orthodoxes, Armenians, Protestants, etc), he called "to reinforce the Unity of the church", against "any form of Division", around Holy Spirit', "the Word","Christ's Justice", and "Love" to fellow- humans : Essentials which "resume all holy scripts", as he said.

To Young People : "New Horizons"
------------------------
To some 15.000 enthousiastic Young People at Notre Dame's parvis, along Seine's river, Benedict spoke about "the Energy of the Holy Spirit" and "the Mystery of the Cross" : - "The Holy Spirit opens New Horizons to Human Intelligence .. and makes it conscious of the real greatness of Christ's sacrifice, dying and resurecting for World's life".

Some "may slander you as crazy, laugh at you, or even persecute you. But, "the Holy Cross is a symbol of God's love", and "givesmoral strength" : "Witness of People's pains, it's at the same time, a precious, unique expression of their Hopes", he told them at Paris' dawn.

Invalides' plateau : "People chosen to become God's friends"
---------------------------------------

But the "Entry Song" focused on the "People chosen to become God's Friends". The September 11 mass was Dedicated to "Saint Chrysostomus, that great priest of Constantinople", with his "wonderful eloquence and great courage to face challenges", who "made out of despaired and godless people, a people of brothers", opening a possibility to "become all one complete entity", as Pope Benedict reminded.

- "Reason never enters in real contradiction with Faith", stressed Pope Benedict, who prepared his speeches for France during a short Summer rest at Brixen/Bressanone's Seminar, whose Library honors both "Faith and Science".. - "We must use not only our Reason, but also our Faith" : "Get away from Idolatry", "cupidity", "avidity for money, power or even knowledge deviating from essential aims", and other "falses appearances". and "build your Home on the Rock", "with the force that Holy Spirit gives to those who let it act in them", he said to the People of Paris.

Benedict at Lourdes : - "Become Light (even) in the Dark !"
------------------------------------------------------------------
- "Our World needs Hope", stressed Pope Benedict, addressing an impressive TorchLight procession at Lourdes' sanctuaries, where a Sea of Lights held by Hundreds of Thousands of People gathered at Pyrenee's Mountains from all over Europe astonishingly kept their flames despite a heavy Rain at a windy Dark Night...

- "150 years earlier (1858 - 2008), ..here, in the cave, ... a simple young girl, Bernadette .. saw a Light". "The everyday life of her Family was, however, made of Misery, Sadness, Sickness, Misunderstandings, Rejection and Poverty... It was hard to live in Jail". Today, "we think to all Human Beings who suffer : The innocent Victims who face Violence, War, Terrorism, Hunger, Injustices, Catastrophes, Hate and Oppression, Violations of Human Dignity and of their fundamental Rights, of their Liberty to act and think. We also think to those who face Familial problems, sufferings from Unemployment, Sickness, Infirmity, Isolation, or their situation as Immigrants, without forgetting those who suffer and die for the name of Christ", he said.

- "But the Shadows of the Earth, did not hinder Sky's Light to shine : <<The Light shines in the Dark>>" ..."A Way full of Light opens in Human History even in its Darkest moments" : ..."As Night falls, Christ tels us : <<- Keep your Lamps alight !>>."Hold a Light while walking in the Night .. sums up our condition as Christians on their way : "We need light, and we are called to become Light !", Benedict stressed to People setting in motion Lights, Flags and Songs with enthousiasm.

"<<- She looked at me as a Person, who speaks to another Person>>, the poor girl had noted."Light emerges from such a Dialogue", stressed the Pope : "A small Flame called Hope, Compassion and Tenderness dwells inside those who return after being moved by Lourdes' experience". "Christ .. entrusts us with the Mission to let the Light of Charity shine : To make of our Prayers an Act of Love to our brothers and to Fraternal Charity", he concluded.
