Xavier, Thanks For The Comment
Our friend, Xavier, posted this comment/question regarding my earlier post on the New Criterion Article, After The Suicide of the West.
«What do you suggest we do? Personally, I'm in favour of some agressive evangelization within Europe of the Moslems particularly the women. They'd welcome the Gospel that elevates them and they have many role models to choose from starting with our Lady. Personally, I regard Islam as a brittle religion because it can't do apolgetics without resorting the gun, the bomb, the spear and the sword.»
I totally agree. What Europe really needs is a new St Louis-Marie de Montfort, but barring that we need an educated cadre willing to take on an agressive evangelisation. The two absolutely necessary texts are al Quran itself and the Summa Contra Gentiles of the Angelic Doctor. These are both available online (links below) and should be read and studied by all of us determined to see Catholicism triumph in the Culture Wars. The reason for al Quran is self evident, but most people forget that the Summa Contra Gentiles was written for the express purpose of being a manual for the conversion of unbelieving Muslims (and Jews).
