Can the Christian Cross reverse the Islamic onslaught?

What must be done to reverse the trend toward Islamization?

France and the West must once again embrace the Cross of Christ, abandoning the worldliness of secularism and the submission of Islam, opting for the true civilization built on the principles of the Gospel.

Such a radical change of society will take true Christian fortitude from vast numbers of individuals who will fight for Christian Civilization. John Horvat II in his recent book Return to Order: From a Frenzied Economy to an Organic Christian Society, states it quite well: “Like it or not, the minute we cease to fight for our Christian culture, we prepare ourselves for defeat. Unless society be permeated by the fortitude needed to confront this great struggle, all our efforts come to nothing.”(1)

A Glorious Future Awaits

When men embrace the Cross with a spirit of abnegation and Christian fortitude following Christ as their model, the transformative power of such a movement of soul cannot be underestimated.

In conclusion, pacifistic secularism is no match for Islam, whether militant or covert, and readers ofSoumission would be wise to bear in mind the words of St. Pius X addressed to France which point to the only lasting solution:

“A day will come, and we hope it is not far off, when France, like Saul on the road to Damascus, will be enveloped in a celestial light and hear a voice that repeats to her: ‘My Subscription5.1

daughter, why dost thou persecute me?’

And to her response, ‘Who art thou, Lord’ the voice will reply: ‘I am Jesus, whom thou persecutest. It is hard to thee to kick against the goad, because in thine obstinacy thou destroyest thyself.’ And she, trembling and filled with wonder, will say; ‘Lord, what wouldst thou have me do?’ And He: ‘Arise, wash away the stains that have disfigured thee, awaken in thy breast the dormant sentiments and the pact of our alliance and go, first-born daughter of the Church, predestined nation, vessel of election, go as in the past, bear my name before all the peoples and the kings of the earth” (Consistorial Allocution Vi ringrazio, of November 29, 1911, in Acta Apostolicae Sedis, Typis Poliglottis Vaticanis, Rome, 1911, p. 657).
