This Sunday, June 8, Pope Francis will allow Islamic "prayer" and reading of Quarn at the Vatican Gardens. He is allowing it (if he didn't outright initiate it) in a misguided quest for "peace". It is the first time in the history of the Vatican that this has ever been done. See here, here, here and here.
So it's never been done before? Has it occurred to His Holiness and his handlers it has never happened before for good reason? Let's be real. The only way real, lasting peace has any chance of occurring is if the world (or the great majority of folks) becomes Catholic. There never will be peace in the world until all come to peace with God; that won't happen without coming to Jesus through His Church. I know this sounds "intolerant" and it certainly isn't politically correct, but only the truth will set us free.
Instead of the pure proclamation of the Gospel, however, the sacred Vatican grounds will be profaned by unabashed exercises of idolatry. What a way to make a mockery of the Solemnity of Pentecost. I'm utterly aghast at the rank stupidity issuing forth from the Vatican these days - and the buck stops with the Holy Father. Let us pray for a real outpouring of the Holy Spirit on our shepherds so that they proclaim the Gospel and make no allowance for error - especially on Catholic property.
