Catholic University Denies Opposing Vatican Declaration

Download PDF for this date

Jorge Molina, vice-rector of the Catholic University in Valparaiso, announced today that he is instituting an investigation to discover the identity of the person or group that falsified the institution’s stand on the question of anti-Semitism.

A leaflet claiming that the university was opposed to the adoption of the Catholic Church declaration deploring anti-Semitism had been distributed widely inside the Vatican last week, just as the issue was being voted upon by the Ecumenical Council.

On the contrary, Mr. Molina said, the faculty and the students of the university favored that declaration, when it was pending in the Ecumenical Council, and now welcomes heartily the fact that the Council had taken a firm stand against anti-Semitism.
