Christianity fades in England as paganism rises...

Many Catholic prophecies have indicated that England would largely abandon Christianity for a time before returning to the faith.  It was Venerable Bartholomew Holzhauser who said, "During the fifth period, we saw only calamities and devastation; oppression of Catholics by tyrants and heretics ...But by the Hand of God Almighty, there occurs so wondrous a change in the sixth period that no one can humanly visualize it. The powerful Monarch, who will be sent by God, will uproot every republic....The Empire of the Mohammedans will be broken up, and this Monarch will reign in the East as well as the West. All nations will come to worship God in the true Catholic and Roman faith. After desolation has reached its peak in England, peace will be restored and England will return to the Catholic faith with greater fervor than ever before."

On February 7, 1946, Our Blessed Mother came to Ida Peerdman as The Lady of All Nations.  Ida recounted:

"Suddenly I see the Lady standing before me. She waves her finger to and fro in warning and says, 'Look over Europe, and warn the peoples of Europe.' The Lady looks very serious and says, 'Ora et labora'..and again she waves her finger to and fro in warning. Next the Lady lets me see a wolf. It keeps walking back and forth before me. Suddenly the animal disappears. Then she lets me see a sheep’s head with horns going around it, all intertwined. Then the Lady says again, 'Europe must be on its guard; warn the peoples of Europe.' After this she lets me see Rome; very clearly I see the Vatican rotating. Now the Lady seems to beckon me with her finger, and she says, 'Come; look carefully at this.' Then she raises three fingers and then her whole hand, that is, five fingers. She repeats this for me a few times. 'Look carefully and listen', she says, 'The East against the West.' Then I hear the Lady say again, 'Be on your guard, Europe! Now, suddenly, I see England before me. The Lady seems to take a step down and it is as if she places her foot on England. I look closely and see the Lady join her hands. Then she warns again; I hear her say, 'Woe to you, England!'
The Lady beckons me again to look carefully. Then all at once I see Rome before me again and the Pope seated. In his hand the Pope has an open book which he lets me see. I cannot see what kind of book it is. Then the Pope shows that book in all directions. I hear the Lady say, 'But much has to be changed there.' She points towards where the Pope is. She looks very serious and shakes her head. Again the Lady raises three fingers and then five fingers. Suddenly a feeling of confusion seizes me, and I hear the Lady say, New disasters are again coming upon the world.'... Then I hear the Lady say, 'Peoples of Europe, join together. Things are not in order here.' In the middle of Europe I see Germany, and it is as if that country wants to wriggle out of its place. Then I see England again, and I have to hold the crown firmly now with both hands. It is as if this crown were swaying, and I would have to put it firmly over England. I hear, 'England, be well aware of your task. England, you will have to go back to the Highest, the Highest!'"

Benedictine sides with atheists in London debate

By Rupert de Lisle on Thursday, 14 October 2010 in the Catholic Herald

A Benedictine monk has joined a panel of atheists arguing that Christians are not persecuted in Britain.

Dom Antony Sutch, former headmaster of Downside, is speaking against the motion “Stop Bashing Christians! Britain has become an anti-Christian country”.

He is joined by Matthew Parris, a Times columnist and former Tory MP, and Geoffrey Robertson, a lawyer who earlier this year published a legal case for arresting the Pope.

They will be debating against the former Archbishop of Canterbury, George Carey, journalist Peter Hitchens and the Booker Prize-winning novelist Howard Jacobson.

The debate, organised by Intelligence Squared and scheduled for November 3, asks if we are seeing “not just the death of the Christian culture which until… recently defined our history and way of life, but a positively hateful animus towards it on the part of officialdom and the bien pensants”.

The debate frames the alleged concerns of Christians in terms of discrimination, saying: “If you’re a Sikh in Britain you don’t have to wear a motorcycle helmet. If you’re a Muslim woman at work, no one objects if you wrap your head in a scarf. But woe betide you if you dare assert your faith or customs as a Christian.”

Possible subjects of contention include the case of the British Airways employee who was reprimanded for wearing a crucifix to work in 2006.

The debate may allude to the controversy surrounding Catholic adoption agencies, which were forced either to close or separate from the Church after legislation made it illegal for them to refuse to assess same-sex couples as potential adopters.

The event also asks: “Do they [Christians] not protest too much?”

It is really getting ugly in Britain. And potentially violent.

"Paganism" are you sure? In my 35 years in England I have only met one pagan and they were a harmless excentric.
