Take Back Europe '06

Interesting post from the pen of Vaticanologist John Allen describing the Holy Father's current pilgrimage to Poland as the beginning of his 'Take Back Europe' summer tour. This will also include Spain, which, with its Socialist government, could be seen as standing for the 'dictatorship of relativism.'

On the other hand, says Allen, 'Poland represents Benedict's hope for a European future rooted in Christian values...Benedict's vision, like that of John Paul, is that the Christian nations of the East will bring that heritage into the construction of the new Europe. While there is undeniably a sentimental dimension to Benedict's Polish visit as a final tribute to Pope John Paul II, the stakes for political and cultural debate throughout Europe are also high.'

We wish him every success as his begins his pilgrimage.
