English Christianity is the heart of Europe
Oct 06, 2007
"Without the Church, Europe would not have a heart," Cardinal Peter Erdo proclaimed as he spoke on October 4 at a meeting of the Council of European Bishops' Conferences (COMECE).

Fatima, Oct. 5, 2007 (CWNews.com) - Cardinal Erdo, the Archbishop of Budapest and president of COMECE, said that Christians have "much work to do in building up a common European home." Echoing a theme that has frequently been sounded by Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI, he said that the Christian heritage forms the common culture of Europe, and thus the most reliable foundation on which European unity can be built.

Speaking in Fatima, Portugal, where COMECE is meeting this week, the Hungarian cardinal said that Europe will be strengthened by an "active and visible" Christian witness-- which will also have the effect of strengthening families and community life.
