E12 Palm Beach Post-Times, Sunday, Nov. 10, 1968 Vatican Reported Unlikely To Brand Jacqueline As 'Public Sinner' council's opening session In 1962: "Nowadays. . . the Bride of Christ prefers to make use of the medicine of mercy rather than that of severity. . ." Pope Paul VI has tended to follow this precept of his predecessor. Vatican newspaper L'Osse-vatore Romano has generally used a more moderate lan lier statement of the official Vatican spokesman, Msgr. Fausto Vallainc, who limited himself to saying Mrs. Onassis was in an "Irregular" situation, cut off from the sacraments so long as her marriage lasts. One Vatican source termed the language In the article, written by Italian theologian think the church was dealing more gently with Mrs.Onassis than it might have done with an ordinary Catholic lacking her fame, prestige and influence. Cardinal Richard James Cushing, the Catholic archbi-ship of Boston and a longtime friend of Mrs. Onassis, may have contributed to this im guage in its editorials In the post-council period than before. L'Osservatore Romano has not even mentioned the Onassis wedding. "The church does not want to exaggerate an already painful situation," said one source. This attitude may have prompted some persons to VATICAN CITY (UPI) -The Vatican is unlikelv to brand Mrs. Jacqueline Onas-sis officially a "public sinner" despite what the Vatican magazine L'Osservatore Delia Domenica says about her. Vatican sources said Saturday. In an article published Wednesday, the magazine re-f erred to her as a public sinner because of her marriage to a divorced man. Aristotle Onas-sis, and said she was in a "state of spirtual degradation." It was the harshest language that has yet come out of the Vatican on the marriage of the former U.S. first lady to the shipping magnate. It went well beyond, the ear Fr. Gino Concetti, as "pre-conclliar" In tone. He referred to the fact that, since the Vatican Ecumenical Council, the Catholic church has been much less prone to use such condemnatory language than it did in the past. The new spirit In the church was keynoted by the late Pope John XXIII in aspeech to the pression when he asked her critics: "Why can't she marry whomever she wants to marry?" But Cushing's statement was a personal one. "He made a rather exaggerated statement, no doubt because of his esteem for the family," said one high Vatican source. beautiful, sparkling supereales9 with hand-embroidered floral avvents rvg. 1-1.9 7.99 twin size 72 x 108" reg. sale double, 81x108" 16,95 8.9.9 double, extra wide, 90x108" 7 95 queen, 90x120" 18.95 9.99 king, 108x120" 24.95 1 1.
