Above you see Card. Francesco Moraglia, Patriarch of Venice, visiting the Islamic Center of Prayers in the municipality of Marghera, in the commune (county) of Venice.
After the visit, the Patriarch stated that the times are ripe for building a mosque in Venice. With this, Moraglia follows the precedent of Card. Giuseppe Betori of Florence who in 2017 gave a piece of property belonging to the Archdiocese to the Muslims to build a mosque.
On that occasion Betori alleged that he did so to comply with the Vatican II directive of religious liberty and freedom of cult.
Moraglia's initiative, which was made public in February, is raising strong criticism among his faithful in Venice. He is being correctly accused of religious relativism.
Do you believe that present day Vatican or Pope Francis will stop such actions? No, they will not. The only possible way to stop this universal apostasy is the divine chastisement predicted in Fatima, which will end this apostasy and, with Our Lady's miraculous intervention, will create the conditions for the Reign of Mary to be installed.
Cardinal Francesco Moraglia with Muslims
"So let us be confident, let us not be unprepared, let us not be outflanked, let us be wise, vigilant, fighting against those who are trying to tear the faith out of our souls and morality out of our hearts, so that we may remain Catholics, remain united to the Blessed Virgin Mary, remain united to the Roman Catholic Church, remain faithful children of the Church."- Archbp. Lefebvre 1980
