“Secular humanism,” Cdl. Bagnasco declared, “revealing itself in its horrible anti-clerical reality has, in a certain sense, defied the council. The religion of God who became Man has met the religion (for such it is) of man who makes himself God.”

The Genoese archbishop cautioned his audience that Europe risks losing the very fruits of civilization and culture Christianity has generated over the past 2,000 years. Quoting the Romantic writer Novalis (Georg Friedrich Philipp von Hardenberg), he warned, “If Europe separated itself totally from Christ, then it would cease to be.”

Hearkening to the “frequent appeals to Europe” of Pope St. John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI, Cdl. Bagnasco repeated the words of Pope Francis who in 2016 said that the continent “has a strength, a culture, a history that must not be wasted.”

Orban made a speech in March in which he said that mass migration “is masquerading as a humanitarian cause, but its true nature is the occupation of territory. And what is gaining territory for them is losing territory for us.”

He added that “those who have come here with the intention of changing our country, shaping our nation in their own image, those who have come with violence and against our will, have always been met with resistance.”

Is Europe Finished? Not according to private revelation which we are not bound by.  This is my answer to the question above and the following article by another Catholic blogger like myself.

A Blog for Dallas Area Catholics

Not to raise the ire of European readers – I would probably bristle somewhat at an outsider proclaiming the US finished (though, I must admit, things look decidedly bleak at present) – but as the article below notes, more and more ominous trends affecting Europe’s future continue to surface.  Probably foremost among those are the negative demographics affecting the Continent, where the native population has seemingly decided to gradually die out, to be replaced by those exotic muslim “others” so beloved of the self-anointed elite.
