← Europe's crisis of faith

colluvial's Avatar Jump to comment 9 by colluvial

...regular churchgoers are growing older all the time and that their number is constantly diminishing ... The essence of the crisis of the church in Europe is the crisis of faith ... On this point, the encounter with Africa's joyful passion for faith brought great encouragement. None of the faith fatigue that is so prevalent here, none of the oft-encountered sense of having had enough of Christianity, was detectable there. Amid all the problems, sufferings and trials that Africa clearly experiences, one could still sense the people's joy in being Christian, buoyed up by inner happiness at knowing Christ and belonging to his church.

Is the pope preparing us for an announcement that the Vatican will be moving south?
