German Church Sees Surge in Growth

Oswald Sobrino at Catholic Analysis argues, correctly I think, that Luther is a central figure in the rise of modernism, which consequently has wrapped Germany in secularist trappings. For those who may doubt the handiwork of the Holy Spirit in the elevation of Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, there is a bright spot from the core of the Dictatorship of Relativism.

Karl Cardinal Lehmann, Bishop of Mainz and presider speaking at the German Bishop’s Conference in Berlin, reported that in the period from May to June more people joined, or returned, to his diocese than in the whole of 2004, with the increase being attributed to the death of Pope John Paul II and the election of countryman Pope Benedict XVI as his successor. He also said that this is a sustainable opportunity that must be exploited fully by increasing engagement with the masses through youth and community work.
