Monsignor Carlo Liberati, Archbishop Emeritus of Pompei o Beatissima Vergine Maria del Santissimo Rosario, has warned that Europe will become Muslim in ten years due to the weakness of Christianity. Archbishop Liberati was responsible for the Pontifical Shrine of the Virgin of the Rosary of Pompei, built by Blessed Bartolo Longo, the former Satanist.
Archbishop Liberati gave a hard-hitting warning about the consequences of Europe’s apostasy from Christianity and moral decadence:
“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. 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.
We help without delay those coming from outside and we forget many poor and old Italians who are eating from the trash. 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?
Giving money to migrants wandering around town is not only wrong, but morally harmful because we encourage their behaviour and they get used to that, not mentioning the fact that we already feed them. I think sometimes this creates a beggars’ network. I remember that my father went to work very hard as a migrant in Australia so I could go to the seminary. So he has experienced in his own skin the discomfort of poverty and the noble virtue of gratitude.”
Archbishop Carlo Liberati has joined a growing number of bishops warning about the threat posed by Islam to Europe due to the collapse of Christianity. On the 2016 anniversary of the defeat of the Muslim army besieging Vienna in 1683 Cardinal Schönborn warned that Islamists were seeking to take advantage of Europeans’ religious and moral weakness to conquer Europe:
“Looking at our situation in Europe we are a little like him. We have squandered the legacy we received from our Christian heritage. We’ve squandered it. And now we wonder what Europe will look like in the future. Not only economically … but above all human, religious, faith. What will become of Europe? Islamism could indeed be the beneficiary. Will there now be a third Islamic attempt to conquer Europe? Many Muslims think that and want that, and they say this is the end of Europe. “
Cardinal Burke has also warned of Islam’s political ambitions in Europe. He is the patron of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, that defeated the attempted Muslim invasion of Malta in 1565. In his book, Hope for the World, Cardinal Burke wrote, “If you really understand Islam, you understand that the Church really should be afraid of it”:
“Nothing has changed in the Islamic agenda from prior times in which our ancestors had to defend Christendom from Muslim attacks. They saw that Islam was attacking sacred truth.”
