Spanish Archbishop prays to Mary to ‘save Spain’ in face of secularisation Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez
Spanish Church leaders have voiced concern for their country’s future after the government pledged to legalise euthanasia, secularise education and strip the Church of “improper assets”.
“Spain faces a critical situation, a true emergency for our future,” Cardinal Antonio Canizares Llovera of Valencia told Catholics in a pastoral letter. He asked that special prayers and Masses be help in Spain “as long as this uncertain future remains unclarified”.
Cardinal Canizares said his warnings were not “rhetoric or sterile drama”, but a call for the Church to “testify to Christ in words and deeds” and help “build a new mentality and a new Spain”.
The coalition parties’ agreement, described by some media as “fragile”, proposes legislation to allow “a dignified death and euthanasia” at public expense and a range of “feminist policies”. It also will “facilitate recovery of assets improperly registered to the Church” and guarantee “state secularity and neutrality toward all religious denominations”, removing religious teaching from school curricula and enhancing comprehensive sexuality education.
