Meanwhile, an Italian bishop had something interesting to say.
I hope the Maltese read this after the way their bishops went to the zoo. HERE
This is an Emeritus Archbishop… so no one can do anything to him, if you get my drift.
‘Everyone will be Muslim because of our stupidity’ Catholic leader blasts ‘WEAK’ church
A PROMINENT figure in the Catholic church has controversially suggested that everyone will “soon be Muslim” because Italy lives in an increasingly secular society amid rapidly growing migration figures.
Monsignor Carlo Liberati, an Italian Archbishop, [Emeritus of Pompei and of the Marian Sanctuary] gave the warning after observing the growing number of detention centres opening up in Europe, suggesting it was a sure fire way to have the Islamic faith become mainstream.
He said: “In 10 years we will all be Muslims because of our stupidity. Italy and Europe live in a pagan and atheist way, they make laws that go against God and they have traditions that are proper of paganism.
“All of this moral and religious decadence favours Islam.”
He added: “We have a weak Christian faith. The Church nowadays does not work well and seminaries are empty.
“Parishes are the only thing still standing. We need a true Christian life. All this paves the way to Islam. In addition to this, they have children and we do not. We are in full decline.”
Thanks be to God for this Archbishop. He is saying what needs to be said.
Years ago, I asked an American bishop what he thought about the state of the Church. “TERRIBLE!”, he rumbled. “What”, I asked, “should we do about it?” “The first thing we have to do is stop blowing happy gas at everyone!”… or words to that effect.
Right now it seems that only retired will stand up.
The moderation queue is ON. Of course.
