.- Archbishop Emeritus Fernando Sebastian of Pamplona said Catholics in Spain should confront the âcultural revolutionâ that is being carried out by the Socialist Party in the country by proclaiming God.
In an interview on COPE radio, the archbishop said, âToday 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. âWe are not the opposition party,â he said, âbut rather the Church of Jesus.â
âFortunately our faith does not depend on politics,â he continued. Politicians must be âput in their placeâ and not be allowed to legislate whatever they want.
âThe world is governed by the principle of pleasure,â and in order to confront it and live in the truth we must realize that âwe do not exist alone, but rather we exist in the world.â This problem, he said, has its origin in the ânon-recognition of God.â
Archbishop Sebastian said, âWe need to proclaim God, to recover the notion of creation. I donât understand how one can be happy without having global vision.â
