** The media and liberal elite have viciously attacked the government of Poland for not bowing to the demands of Berlin and Brussels. Now, they have revealed their bitter disdain for the Polish people by openly mocking and slandering their beliefs and traditions. This was not only an attack on Poland, but it targeted the Polish people and their beliefs.
As Catholics lined the country’s 2,000-mile border for the “Rosary at the Borders,” progressives and compatible media deemed the national prayer gathering “controversial,” xenophobic, Islamophobic, or “not” representative of the Catholic Church.
More than 90 percent of Poland’s 38 million citizens are Roman Catholic. The Catholic prime minister of Poland endorsed the rosary event as well. Beata Szydlo tweeted, “I greet all the participants.”
Poland’s national Catholic prayer event also coincided with the feast of the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary on the October 7 anniversary of the 1571 naval victory of the Holy League Battle over the Ottoman Empire navy at the Battle of Lepanto. The rosary is closely tied to the Lepanto victory, due to Pope Saint Pius V’s call for the faithful to pray the rosary for victory.
Father Lucie-Smith noted that Poland has a different history than other European nations such as Britain, having been “wiped off the map on several occasions” in recent history.
“If the Poles seem more attached to national sovereignty than most, who can blame them?” he asked. “Their sovereignty has been much disputed. Moreover, the question of Polish nationhood is deeply connected to the Catholic faith. Both in matters of ethnicity and religion, the Poles have been steadfast in resisting Russification. Can you blame them?”
He also said the Poles are entitled to make their own choices in the matter of admitting migrants, and to pray for the salvation of Poland and the world was “admirable. The Polish example should spur others to do the same.”
*** The Cultural Clash continues between the cultural Marxists of Brussels and the traditional Catholics of Poland. The EU has decided to attack Poland because they cannot control them and have failed to win the hearts and minds of the Polish people. The slanderous campaign being conducted by the EU Ministers and their mercenaries in the media remind one of the tactics employed by the totalitarian regimes of the past.
Poland is an emerging power in Europe and they will defend their culture, traditions and way of life. The EU will have to get used to it. Unlike others, Poland (and Hungary) will not sell their Soul for the false promise of EU Gold.
