There is no that Christ has not for us and does US." to seminarians in Yonkers, N.Y., to members of the U.N. General Assembly, and to young people in New York's Central Park, the pope spoke of the need to turn to • God to help overcome fears. He also spoke of the diversity of the United States and the need to continue its tradition of wel- coming immigrants.

But when Mary realized it was God who was calling her, "all fear was banished." "Like Mary, you must not be afraid to allow the Holy Spirit to help you become intimate friends of Christ," he said. "Christ wants to go many places in the world and to enter many hearts through you," he told the young people, urging them to conquer their fears to b.e able to spread Christ's message. At the United Nations Oct. 5, U.N. Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali, antici- pating what the pope would say, told the assembly, "he calls upon us, like the angel in. the garden, to "be not afraid.' He tells us that we can and we must conquer fear if we are to solve the problems of our planet and its people.  The polyglot Polish pope spoke in English, French, Spanish, Russian, Arabic and Chinese, the official languages nf, the United Nations, to en- courage the world's people to look to the future with hope. "Men and women must learn to conquer fear," he said. "We must learn not to be afraid; we must rediscover a spirit of hope and a spirit of trust." The following day, speaking to seminarians at St. Joseph Seminary in Yonkers, the pope said priests must be strong in their faith ane ynafraid of de- nouncing evil. "You need courage to follow Christ, especially when you recognize that so much of our dominant culture is a culture offlight from God, a culture which displays a not-so-hidden contempt for human life, be- ginning with the lives of the unborn, and extending to con- tempt for the frail and elderly,  the pope said. Wherever he went, the pope was greeted by enthusiastic crowds: more than 80,000 people at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J., and Aqueduct Racetrack in Queens, N.Y.; nearly 60,000 at Baltimore's Ori- ole Park; and 125,000 people at Central Park. News reports said 350,000 people turned out for the papal parade through down- town Baltimore. After reciting the rosary with thousands of people in St. Patrick's Cathedra U.S. bishops' conference officials seemed sur- prised. "The pope's escaped on foot down Fifth Ave,!" said one. He walked to the corner of E. 50th St. and over to Cardi- nal John J. O'Connor's ;esi* i dence on Madison Ave., sur- rounded by a couple dozen Vatican officials and hundreds of security officials• Earlier, while he was in the cathedral, about 200 gay protesters outside, kept at a dis- tance by riot police, shouted See POPE page 3
