Spanish cardinal says solution for Europe’s problems lies in Christianity

Jul 14, 2007 - 06:55 am .- Cardinal Antonio Maria Rouco Varela of Madrid said this week the problems that plague Europe , such as a low birth rate, could be solved by returning to the Christian roots of the European culture which made it “a luminous point of reference” for the rest of the world. Speaking on the COPE radio network, the cardinal recalled a recent speech he gave at= the Cathedral of Ratisbona ( Germany ) in which he said the serious problems and questions facing Europe would not be solved if the continent’s Christian history is ignored.
