The present two popes have also forgotten their Catholic roots and so have the governments.They speak about Europe's Christian roots but they really mean its Catholic roots.
Christian civilization with its scientific discoveries was originally Catholic.Jesus founded only one Church which did not have the doctrines of Martin Luther.
Italy too has forgotten its Catholic roots as the pope recently told the Neo Cathecumenal Way, to avoid 'triumphalism'.He did not want them to interpret Vatican Council II in harmony with the Europe of the past.
Pope Benedict in March 2016 told us that the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus, for him, was no more like it was in 16th century- Europe. He had a choice. He could have said that Vatican Council II supports EENS as it was known to the Jesuit missionaries in 16th century Spain.But he avoided saying this .So he maintained the doctrinal confusion among Catholics.
He forgot Germany's Catholic roots too, before, the theological and doctrinal Protestant invasion supported by the German princes.
Then on March 1, 2018 Cardinal Luiz Ladari s.j was telling all Catholic politicians in Europe that they could no more proclaim the Social Reign of Christ the King over all political legislation. Since for him, there was known salvation outside the Church.No politician told him that this was false. There are no known cases of the baptism of desire, baptism of blood and being saved in invincible ignorance, outside the Catholic Church and there never were.
Even Matteo Salvini the populist political leader of Italy, once shown with a rosary in his hand, in a photograph before the last elections has not called Italy back to its Roman Catholic roots.Instead he unknowingly supports the Left's vision of a vague Christian theology for Europe.Perhaps this is ignorance.Since the cardinals and bishops also interpret Vatican Council II with the irrational premise( invisible people are visible and examples of salvation outside the Church) when without this false premise, approved by the popes, Italy would return to the old teaching on extra ecclesiam nulla salus, which Berlusconi remembers being taught at school by the Redemptorists.
To go back to Europe's roots it is important for Salvini and other Catholic politicians to correct the false theology in the Church. Then they can unite the Catholic population with a common traditional theology and the traditional doctrines, in harmony with the Syllabus of Errors of Pope Pius IX, which presently is opposed by the two popes and the Jewish Left.
It is only when Catholics have unity in theology and doctrine that Europe can go back to its Catholic roots.-Lionel Andrades
