Catholics should confront Socialist “cultural revolution”, says Spanish archbishop

.- Archbishop Emeritus Fernando Sebastian of Pamplona said Catholics in Spain should confront the “cultural revolution” that is being carried out by the Socialist Party in the country by proclaiming God.
 
In an interview on COPE radio, the archbishop said, “Today in Spain Catholics need to be aware that we are capable of sustaining a face-to-face discussion with the message of the culture of the Socialist party which is seeking to promote a cultural revolution.  “We are not the opposition party,” he said, “but rather the Church of Jesus.”
 
“Fortunately our faith does not depend on politics,” he continued.  Politicians must be “put in their place” and not be allowed to legislate whatever they want.
 
“The world is governed by the principle of pleasure,” and in order to confront it and live in the truth we must realize that “we do not exist alone, but rather we exist in the world.”  This problem, he said, has its origin in the “non-recognition of God.”

Archbishop Sebastian said, “We need to proclaim God, to recover the notion of creation.  I don’t understand how one can be happy without having global vision.”
