PopeCalls Virgin Mary 'New Woman By Kdwnrd Magri VATICAN CITY (AP) Pope Paul VI. in an. attempt to mod- ernize the image of the Virgin Alary, describes her as "the new woman" who took an ac- tive role in the early Christian church and championed (he rights of the weak against the powerful.

In a 95-page "Apostolic Exho tation of the Right Ordering an Development of Devotion to 11 Blessed Virgin issue Friday, the Pope conceded th "the picture of the Blessed Vi gin presented in a certain typ of devotional literature canni easily be reconciled with ti day's life style, especially wil :he way women live today." But he proposed Mary as an example to be imitated for the way in which "she fully anc responsibly accepted the will of God." To "the modern woman ani ous to participate with decision making power in the affairs he community, Mary will iear not as a mother exclusiv y concerned with her own d 'ine son but rather as a woma vhose action helped to strengtl en the apostolic community' he wrote.-. "She was a woman who dii lot hesitate to proclaim tha od vindicates the humble an he oppressed, and removes th owerful people of this worli mm their privileged positions." "Mary, the new woman lands at the side of Christ, thi ew Pope Paul said.

He said devotion should be 'objective in its historical set- ting and for this reason every thing that is obviously legen- dary or false must be eliminat- ed." He said devotion to Mary was something the Catholics sharec with the Orthodox churches anc ex1 pressed concern about the im- false approach to the Virgin Mary pact .that a devotion of would have on efforts to bring Christians of all denominations closer together.
