Truth From an Archbishop

 

 

I guess these days archbishops have to be retired before we can expect to here truth from them:

 

Monsignor Carlo Liberati, Archbishop Emeritus of Pompeii, said that Islam will soon become Europe’s main religion thanks to the huge number of Muslim migrants alongside the increasing secularism of native Europeans.

Speaking to Italian Catholic journal La Fede Quotidiana, the archbishop 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.”

“We have a weak Christian faith,” he added. “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.”

 

The archbishop added that the problem is not just Muslim immigration. The number of Eastern Europeans arriving over the past few years has also hit the quality of life for native Italians, he said.

“We help without delay those coming from outside and we forget many poor and old Italians who are eating from the trash,” the archbishop said. “We need policies that take care of Italians first: our young people and the unemployed.

“I am a protester. If I were not a priest, I’d be out there demonstrating in the squares. What is the point of so many migrants that instead of thanking for the food we give them, they just throw it, spend hours with their cell phones and even organise riots?”

 

Go here to read the rest.  The Church is being taken for a ride when it comes to Islamic immigration by fools and worse.

  1. So be it.

    The politically correct infestation that is fueled by liberial relativism and anti-Christian propaganda will level Europe.
    The help to pommel the once rich Christendom will be from the new Islamic conquests.

    We are seeing a rise in conversions from Islam to Christianity, as talking heads tell it on All Kresta’s afternoon program, but is it enough to slow down the tsunami hitting Europe? Probably not.

    What of America?
    Islamophobia and bigotry is what they call it when concerned American’s speak of better vetting operations and a slow down of importing Refugees.
    Common sense is a better definition.

    As far as the religious aspects, America too will have much to reclaim if Johnny and Sally do not teach basic Christianity and live it daily to their little ones…Of course they will be to politically correct to guide their children into belief systems.
    Our new Islamic State recruitment programs provided by mommy and daddy.

    So be it.

  2. Vatican II with it’s emphasis on embracing the world and it’s values has succeeded marvelously. So marvelously in fact that nearly all semblance of Catholic thinking has disappeared. Gone is the Thomistic natural law basis for philosophical understanding, i.e., common sense. Gone is the understanding that the Catholic religious is unique and supreme. Gone is the truth about Islam spoken by many Popes in the past. Gone is the Catholic mission to convert the world.

    Instead what we have on the part of many leader in the Church a fatuous and wishy-washy political correctness and accommodation. But let us get to the point. What we have is the devil and his minions now controlling much of the Catholic Church. And the worst part few people of even concerned about like the proverbial mouse dying as the water temperature rises.

    Let us pray to Our Lady of Fatima for divine intervention where actions speak louder than words.

  3. Italy has a Total Fertility Rate of 1.4 (just ahead of Germany (1.38) and Spain (1.32) A quarter of Italian women aged 45-55 are childless.
    Population decline is inevitable, as there are not enough women of child-bearing age to reverse it. The median age is 44.8 years.
    Italian is set to join Latin and Etruscan as dead languages, with Dante and Petrarch being read only by bored school-children.

  4. Last week was what the USCCB termed Migration Week. Elements in the Catholic Church are not only complicit, but actively promoting this dilution of Christianity here. Catholic Charities has accepted millions from the traitorous most recent administration precisely to facilitate relocation of so-called immigrants, who are constantly proving to be terrorists. As was stated in this clip, the devil is in charge.

  5. I’ve always held the belief that the radical islamists created chaos, torture and wars … not to take over their own lands, but for the very intent to push out their muslim faithful … creating a false parousia that forces islam into their enemy’s culture. Will we let it continue to take hold … or use it against them and watch good muslims convert to the one true faith? Only God knows.

  6. The virtue of charity is a personal decision between the giver and the receiver. Virtues may not be tyrannically imposed, not by bishops, nor clergy, nor politicians. Like tithing, the virtue of charity is to be determined by the parishioner or the citizen.
    Religion is not the realm of the state. Religion is a personal and intimate relationship with “their Creator”, God, The Supreme Sovereign Being. Charity begins at home.
    Involuntary charity imposed, is extortion. Where is RICO when you need them.

  7. Mary De Voe wrote, “Like tithing, the virtue of charity is to be determined by the parishioner or the citizen.”

    Except that tithing was not “determined by the parishioner” for about a thousand years, beginning with an ordinance made by Charlemagne as King of the Franks, in a general assembly of his Estates, spiritual and temporal, in 778-779. The ordinance was in the following terms : “Concerning tithes, it is ordained that every man give his tithe, and that they be dispensed according to the bishop’s commandment.”

    A Capitular for Saxony in 789 appointed tithes to be paid out of all public property, and that all men, “whether noble, or gentle, or of lower degree,” should “give according to God’s commandment, to the churches and priests, of their substance and labour : as God has given to each Christian, so ought he
    to repay a part to God.”’

    A Capitular of 800 made the payment of tithes universal within the fiscal domain of the whole Frankish kingdom. We are told the reading of this Capitular was interrupted by loud and repeated cries from Pope Leo III and the assembled clergy of “Life and victory to our ever-august Emperor!”

    From this time onwards, therefore, payment of tithes was no longer a religious duty alone; it was a legal obligation, enforceable by the laws of the civil head of Christendom.
