    Background: POPE PAUL AS BISHOP OF ROME, TODAY (SUNDAY) DROVE IN TRIUMPH TO TAKE FORMAL POSSESSION OF HIS CATHEDRAL -- THE PATRIARCHAL ARCHBASILICA OF SAINT JOHN LATERAN.

    CROWDS PACKED THE BE-FLAGGED STREETS TO CHEER HIM ALONG THE THREE MILE (5 KILOMETRE) ROUTE FROM THE VATICAN TO THE BASILICA.

    IN A SOLEMN PROCESSION AT THE MAIN ENTRANCE TO THE BASILICA, BISHOPS ATTENDING THE ECUMENICAL COUNCIL PROCEEDED THE POPE. AS HE APPROACHED, CARRIED SHOULDER-HIGH ON HIS PORTABLE THRONE AND WEARING THE GLEAMING TRIPLE CROWN WITH WHICH HE WAS CROWNED PONTIFF IN JUNE, THE BAND STRUCK UP THE PONTIFICAL ANTHEM. THOUSANDS PRESSED AGAINST THE CRUSH BARRIERS BLOCKING OFF THE SQUARE AS TWO REGIMENTS OF ITALY'S ARMED FORCES PRESENTED ARMS IN HONOUR OF POPE PAUL.

    AT THE ENTRANCE TO THE BASILICA THE POPE EXCHANGED HIS CROWN FOR A GEM-STUDDED MITRE. HE WAS OFFERED THE KEYS OF THE CATHEDRAL, AND THEN CARRIED ALONG THE CENTRAL NAVE FLANKED BY BISHOPS.

    HE DISMOUNTED FROM HIS THRONE IN FRONT OF THE HIGH ALTAR TOPPED BY A BEAUTIFUL GOTHIC TABERNACLE, AND KNELT APOSTLES PETER AND PAUL.

    THE POPE THEN CELEBRATED MASS AT THE HIGH ALTAR.

    AFTER A 20 MINUTE ADDRESS IN ITALIAN THE POPE GAVE HIS APOSTOLIC BENEDICTION TO THE CITY AND THE WORLD.
