The “overhelming rights” of the Catholics to the holy places in Palestine were stressed by Pope Pius addressing the secret Consistorium on May 23 last, it is learned.

“It is hardly necessary to say that we will, as hitherto, defend the undeniable, obvious and overhelming rights of Catholics to the Holy places in Palestine”, the Pontiff is reported to have said.
