The Third Try

…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger

Cardinal Schönborn will never be a Pope. He seems to be a Christian.

The Viennese Archbishop was preaching Sunday at the feast of Mariä Namen, which marks the victory of the Christian armies over the Ottoman Turks in the battle of Vienna on Sept. 12, 1683.

“We ourselves are the very ones who have placed the Christian heritage of Europe in danger. Is this a third Islamic attempt to conquer Europe? Many Muslims say that Europe is at the end,” Schönborn said in his homily.

“The prospect of a European Christian renewal is up to us. We must return to Christ, spread his Gospel and to deal with our fellow human beings, even strangers, with Him in our hearts, with love and responsibility,” he continued.

He told the Catholic newspaper Der Sonntag that “Europe’s Christian heritage is in danger because we Europeans have squandered it. It has nothing to do with Islam or even refugees. It is clear that Islamists would like to exploit our weakness, but they are not responsible for our weakness. We Europeans are responsible for that.” [full text Many muslims want conquest of Europe ]

About Antisthenes

A Greek philosopher, a pupil of Socrates. Led a revolt, with Diogenes, against the demands of the city-state and the sophistication of life. Accepted the interrelation of knowledge, virtue, and happiness; and sought the ideal condition for happiness in return to primitivism and self-sufficiency. Rejected all social distinctions as based on convention, scorned orthodox religion as a fabrication of lies, and studied early legends and animal life in order to arrive at a true understanding of natural law. The individual was free and self-sufficient when he was master of his passions, secure in his intelligence, impervious to social or religious demands, and satisfied with the poverty of a mendicant. Needless to say, a person who on the Fog of Chaos adopted the Athenian philosopher's name has nothing whatsoever in common with him.
