Is Cardinal Christoph Schönborn waking up to the horrible reality at his gates?

The Cardinal has since "clarified" his remarks.
“Europe’s Christian legacy is in danger, because we Europeans have squandered it. That has absolutely nothing to do with Islam nor with the refugees. It is clear that many Islamists would like to take advantage of our weakness, but they are not responsible for it. We are.”
He is correct, of course. 
But Muslims are an existential threat to Europe. Who pushed him to "clarify?"

Clearly,  somebody got to him though, he seems to be walking it back.

On Sunday, September 11, the Cardinal Archbishop of Vienna gave a notable talk in St. Stephen's Cathedral. The date of course is that on which Mohammedans murdered over three-thousand souls in New York, Washington and rural Pennsylvania. The date was not an accident as it commemorated the last decisive victory over the Islamic hordes at the Gates of Vienna under the great Polish leader an Sobieski. 

It does not matter where a person is from or what race he or she belongs too. It is not the colour of skin or form of eyes or facial features. All are called to be with Christ and His Church. What matters is culture, not race. These clerics, like Schönborn, bear responsibility for weakening the Faith which in turn, weakened the culture. Can our culture stand up to this invasion? Not without Christ, not without the Sacraments, not without the Church.

As for Moslems, their Mohammed is dead. Mohammed is dead, his corpse rotted away. 

Jesus Christ is alive! 

False ecumemnism, religious indifferntism and dialogue and  liturgical destruction have lead to this loss of our cultural identity and unity.

As an aside, note this paragraph from the article below:
Before going to war, the Polish king, a devout Catholic, had entrusted his kingdom to the Blessed Virgin, Our Lady of Czestochowa. Drawing on this legacy, in 1684 Pope Innocent XI introduced Feast of the Most Holy Name of the Blessed Virgin Mary for the date of Sept. 12. The feast was briefly struck from the calendar by liturgical reformer Monsignor Annibale Bugnini during Vatican II, but restored by Saint John Paul II in 2002.
Can anyone deny the impact that the Novus Ordo Missae and the destruction of the calendar has meant to our culture and identity? It is when I read paragraphs like this from writers you would not expect that I smile and recall the good friend who visited Bugnini's grave, a ground level niche, and suitably anointed. Can you say, "asperges?"

Christians of Europe, of North America, Australia wake-up. The only way to save our culture is by returning to it and then the conversion of those who now, seek to destroy us and think that their victory is at hand. The alternative is mass deportation and civil war because becoming one of them is simply not an option.

Yet, there is another option. Our governments will ban all religion. It will be done because Islam will be no longer tolerated. In our magnanimous embrace of equality one cannot just "ban" Islam. All religion will be banned. All churches, synagogues and mosques will be closed unless, - unless they adopt the new globalist creed syncretic religion of man that will be monitored and policed.

Vienna, Austria, Sep 14, 2016 / 11:45 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Cardinal Christoph Schönborn has warned that Europe risks forfeiting its “Christian inheritance” and that an “Islamic conquest” could be in its future. 
Speaking in the Cathedral of Vienna on Sunday, Sept. 11, the Archbishop of Vienna referenced the feast day that commemorates the decisive victory of a Christian coalition over the Ottoman Empire in the Battle of Vienna in 1683.
“On this day, 333 years ago, Vienna was saved,” he said. “Will there now be a third attempt at an Islamic conquest of Europe? Many Muslims think so and long for it and say: This Europe is at an end.”
“And I think that we should ask for Europe what Moses does in the reading of today and what God the Merciful does for the younger son: Lord, give us another chance! Do not forget that we are your people just like Moses reminds Him: They are your people, You led them out, You sanctified them, they are your people.”
On Sept. 11, 1683, Polish King John Sobieski III and Supreme Commander of the Christian Coalition Army, led 18,000 horsemen, with the famous “winged hussars,” against the enemy Turkish lines. In a battle that included what is considered the largest cavalry charge in history, Sobieski thoroughly defeated them. The victory of allied Polish, Austrian, Bavarian, Saxon, Venetian and other troops marked the historic end of the expansion of the Ottoman Empire into Europe.
Before going to war, the Polish king, a devout Catholic, had entrusted his kingdom to the Blessed Virgin, Our Lady of Czestochowa. Drawing on this legacy, in 1684 Pope Innocent XI introduced Feast of the Most Holy Name of the Blessed Virgin Mary for the date of Sept. 12. The feast was briefly struck from the calendar by liturgical reformer Monsignor Annibale Bugnini during Vatican II, but restored by Saint John Paul II in 2002.
Cardinal Schönborn, a confidante of Pope Francis, warned the congregation in the Cathedral of Vienna on Sunday, that Europe had “squandered and wasted” its Christian inheritance, just like the younger brother in the parable told by Christ.
“What will become of Europe?” asked the cardinal.
He closed his homily with a prayer:
“Lord, remember, it is your people. And if we have strayed and if we have squandered the inheritance, Lord, do not abandon us! Do not abandon this Europe, which has produced so many saints. Do not abandon us, because we have become lukewarm in our faith.
“…Have mercy on your inheritance, have mercy on your people, with Europe, which is about to forfeit your Christian inheritance! Have mercy on us and raise us up again, for the glory of your name and as a blessing to the world! Amen.”

Let us not allow ourselves to get sucked in.

Word on the grapevine is the Schonborn is positioning himself as Francis' successor. He is trying to "feed the pigeons" as Mundabor would say. Tagle is too weak and the Germans are giving up on him.

He is evil, and the litmus test for all Catholic prelates should be their position on doctrine, Amoris Laetitia in particular. And we know Schonborn's.

Thanks Vox that was most encouraging. Nice is have a flicker of hope coming from such a devoted Francisite as Cardinal Schonborn. Maybe it's his Dominican heritage getting to him.

Sixupman said...

+++Schonborn now claiming he was mis-quoted! Read Fr. Hunwicke re +++Schonborn.

Luciano said...

Is it possible Vox that there is an awakening happening, last week Cardinal Maradriaga stated homosexuals are not born this way and now C. Schonborn calling for Europe to return to Christianity.

To understand what we are up against, it is necessary to read the list of illuminati members given at
" @" They just about cover all tiers of society & their influence has been shown for all to see since their inception, but too many brand any vocal opposition to them as 'conspiracy theories'.

I do not trust any Cardinal now as I sense they are all part of this organisation in one form or another. Maybe some not so deeply involved but certainly not strong enough in their faith to resist. Our only hope is in Divine Providence. Lund is coming & so is the Centenary of the Fatima apparitions. Much can be expected to happen between these two dates. We should focus on demanding the consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary & hopefully She will come to our aid. It is now beyond individual lay people who have been continuously spurned by PF (43 academics & countless signed petitions & letters to Bishops/Cardinals & Pope), plus the 500 clergy & 13 Cardinals who had their wrists slapped for upholding Holy Matrimony. Their moral strength has left them.

Ana Milan:

What does Lund mean. Never heard of it.

Vox Cantoris said...


Lund is in a city in Sweden. On October 31, Francis will visit there with Lutherans to celebrate Martin Luther and the Protestant Reformation and pray to thank God for it.

We are to be pitied.
Some Modernist ally of the reigning destroyer throws us a few crumbs that seem to indicate he may realize his actions have made possible the destruction of Christianity and peoples in Europe. He walks that back just the tiniest wee bit, and we are encouraged. Even the tiny walk-back was apparently retracted.
No. These men are on full-destroy mode. Whether or not they realize it, I'll leave to God to sort out, but destroyers they certainly are.

Michael Dowd said...

Thanks Maria. One thing you can say about Pope Francis is that he wears his Protestantism on his sleeve. But basically he's a Janis-faced conniver and con artist.

Coming from him, a notorious enabler of everything that is weakening Christianity, this is another example of the kettle calling the pot black. Of course a really virile response would involve more than just "offering a prayer."
