This, he .said, had been divinely revealed. The new dogma thus became part of .the church creed which 400,000,000 Roman Catholics throughout'the world must accept or risk exposure 'to heresy. ; The . last.-dogma added to the church doctrine was in 1870,. :The pronouncement, contained In a long /papal bull, was read from- a temporary throne before the central -doors of St. Peter's Basilica..-- In£ front ~of -the · pontiff stretched a .throng of -Holy Year pilgrims and: Jtomans: saidby Vatican historians;-to be J the greatest · they couldi'recalh In.

' Loudspeakers and radio carried the pope's Latin words .to the outer fringes of the assemblage and to th» far corners of the world. They also picked up the thunderous .-choir of bells from·;:Rome's nearly 500 churches which.began a festive tolling at the conclusion of the proclamation, and the hurricane of cheers and "vivas"'which greeted the pope's declaration.

Vatican maintains diplomatic-'.relations. There were no representatives from the Iron Curtain countries. The pageantry began at 8:30 a.m in bright sunshine, when the head of the great procession conducting the pontiff emerged . from the bronze :doors of Vatican' palace.

The.roar swelled as the pontiff was carried 'slowly into the square, before the obelisk in its center and then up the steps to the red damask-covered throne. One by one the cardinals stepped before the pope, who was -flanked ranks of Vatican nobles, and Swiss guards in colorful uniforms, and knelt in obeisance. Eugene Cardinal Tisserant of France, sub-deacon of the Sacred college, then stepped forward and in Latin requested the pope "in stanter"--immediately--to exercise "supreme judgment" and declare , "Mary, our most sweet mother" to'be assumed In body and soul into-heaven. Replying: in Latin, Pius .said he wishedto.pray., ; He' : raised his voice, asking .'for ^guidance from, God In this "most grave.:a'ct" The pope-Intoned "Veni, Creator" itomoe«oiiCr,eator." Then in-,one of the most', ..tense moments, he dropped to his. knees to pray. A few, minutes later he- began three-quarters .of a nille away.
