    Background: MONSIGNOR FRANTISEK TOMASEK, ACTING HEAD OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH IN CZECHOSLOVAKIA, ARRIVED IN ROME TODAY (FRIDAY) TO REPORT TO POPE PAUL ON WARMER CHURCH-STATE RELATIONS UNDER THE NEW LEADERSHIP IN CZECHOSLOVAKIA.

    MONSIGNOR TOMASEK, APOSTOLIC ADMINISTRATOR OF PRAGUE IN THE ABSENCE OF THE EXILED PRIMATE, CARDINAL JOSEF BERAN, SAID ON HIS ARRIVAL THAT 'MANY THINGS ARE LOOMING ON THE HORIZON FOR THE CZECHOSLOVAK CHURCH AND ITS FUTURE'.

    MONSIGNOR TOMASEK WAS ACCOMPANIED BY BISHOP AMBROZ LASIK, BISHOP OF TRNAVA IN EASTERN CZECHOSLOVAKIA.

    THE OFFICIAL REASON FOR MONSIGNOR TOMASEK'S VISIT IS TO ATTEND A VATICAL DEPARTMENTAL MEETING. HOWEVER, REUTER SAYS THAT HE IS ALSO TO CONFER WITH POPE PAUL AND PREPARE FOR NEGOTIATIONS WITH THE NEW CZECHOSLOVAKIAN LEADERSHIP FOR MORE RELIGIOUS LIBERTY AND RIGHTS.

    THE VISITING CZECH CHURCH REPRESENTATIVES ARE EXPECTED TO MEET WITH CARDINAL BERAN WHO LEFT CZECHOSLOVAKIA IN 1964 AFTER 14 YEARS OF CONFINEMENT.
