PASTORAL VISIT OF THE POPE TO THE UNITED STATES: "A BIG THRUST AS WE MOVE TOWARD THE MILLENNIUM"

          PEORIA, 9 (NE) Bishop John Myers of Peoria expressed this week the importance of putting into practice the teachings the Holy Father has given during his last pastoral visit to America. The bishop considered the Pope's pilgrimage to the United States as "a big thrust as we move toward the millennium."

          Bishop Myers encouraged Catholics of the diocese to fan the "spark of renovation" contained in the Pope's message, by becoming familiar with it and putting it into practice. "The example the Holy Father gave us can only help us as we try to live more fully in Christ," he said. The Bishop of Peoria highlighted as well the great message of evangelization that the appearance alone of Pope John Paul II delivered during his visit.
