Address by His Holiness Pope Francis to the European Parliament plenary session in Strasbourg on Novemeber 25, 2014
BREAKING! In an unbelievable speech to the European Union parliament, Pope Francis channelled the pontificates of Pope Benedict XVI and Saint John Paul II, obliterating the "dictatorship of relativism" that has brought Europe to social emptiness and political despair. He called upon Europe to re-embrace its Christian history and culture, citing that far from being a threat to secular institutions, Christianity offers values and morals that enrich them. He called for a fusion of solidarity with SUBSIDIARITY, that respects the cultural diversity of Europe and the local governance of peoples. He decried abortion, and the throwaway culture, which leaves the unborn, aged and infirm to die alone. He assailed rampant materialism, corporatism and consumerism, that has left half of the world to starvation while the other half throws away uneaten food. He called for greater stewardship of the ecology and new innovations to better conserve the world's energy. He compared and contrasted the individual with hyper-individualism, wherein man should be free to do what is right, not free to do "whatever he wants." He focused on the nuclear family as the building block of civilisation and called upon governments to protect and promote the family. Most of all, he called upon Europe to return to God and its Christian roots. In what is quite possibly the most significant speech of the 21st cetury (so far) the pope outlined principles that, if embraced, could guide Europe into a new renaissance of greatness, but if rejected, will leave Europe in social ruin, and the European Union on the ash heap of history. This was truly a HISTORIC speech, and it received several applause concluding with a standing ovation. PLEASE WATCH & SHARE!!!!
