It is time to restore the primacy of the spiritual, which will require a thorough going reform of church and state. European politician should make a pilgrimage of penance to Rome given their mistakes on economic issues which are going to cause untold suffering to millions and Pope and Bishops should make a pilgrimage of penance to the Palatine Chapel in Aachen in penance for the systematic child abuse and its cover up of the post-war years by the Catholic Church, which was a complete inversion of the moral and religious order.
Only then will Europe be at peace. And they thought that mere money in the form of the euro would give her prosperity.
Unless the Lord build the house, they labour in vain that build it. Unless the Lord keep the city, he watcheth in vain that keepeth it.
