    Background: TONIGHT THE POPE IS BACK IN VATICAN CITY AT THE END OF HIS HISTORY MAKING JOURNEY TO INDIA - BUT THE MEMORY AND IMPRESSION LEFT BY THE GREAT EVENTS OF THE PAST DAYS IN BOMBAY WILL REMAIN VIVID FOR MANY YEARS TO COME. POPE PAUL, WITH HIS SIMPLICITY AND EAGERNESS TO KNOW AND UNDERSTAND INDIA, HAS CAPTURED THE IMAGINATION OF MILLIONS OF INDIANS OF EVERY RELIGION - NOT JUST THE ROMAN CATHOLIC MINORITY.

    THREE DAYS CROWDED WITH RELIGIOUS CEREMONY - SOMETIMES DIRECTLY CONNECTED WITH THE INTERNATIONAL EUCHARISTIC CONGRESS; ON OTHER OCCASIONS OF A MORE PERSONAL NATURE. EARLY ON THE THIRD DAY POPE PAUL CELEBRATED MASS IN ST. PAUL'S PARISH IN BOMBAY. AS USUAL, A GREAT CROWD GATHERED TO SEE HIM ADMINISTER THE HOLY SACRAMENTS, AND THE CONGREGATION INCLUDED A NUMBER OF CHILDREN FROM THE PARISH ORPHANAGE. (THE POPE WAS LATER TO SHARE THEIR SIMPLE BREAKFAST).

    THROUGHOUT THE VISIT, THE POOR - AND ESPECIALLY THE SICK, WERE NEVER OUT OF THE POPE'S MIND. HE VISITED BOMBAY'S LARGEST GENERAL HOSPITAL - THE J.J. HOSPITAL - AND BLESSED THE STAFF AND PATIENTS. HE WAS PRESENTED WITH A BOUQUET OF FLOWERS BY A LITTLE GIRL FROM THE CHILDREN'S WARD. (FOR HIS PART THE POPE RETURNED THEIR AFFECTION WITH A GIFT OF RADIO THERAPY INSTRUMENTS).
