This article, on a translation appeared on The Eponymous Flower, is the best piece of Catholic news I have read in some time.
Seen in context and weighing all the evidence and the sources, the main issue of the article appears incontrovertible: Christianity is on the march in many prevalently Muslim countries. We see here Christ at work under our eyes: the persecuted Church is the Church at its strongest and irresistible in Her advance; an advance paved by the suffering and the blood of Her martyrs.
It must not surprise that such news never make the mainstream outlets: not only is this extremely politically incorrect news for the champagne faggots in BBC style, but it is also a phenomenon that would, for obvious reasons, very seldom be mentioned in the Arab mainstream media.
I also agree with the author of the article when he says the answer to Islam can never be the supposed enlightenment of the secular world, but rather the provision of religious truth in place of religious falsehood. A godless “progress” can never quench spiritual thirst.
Read the article, and smile. Christ is not stopped by stupid clergy. He will punish us in the West because we have deserved the punishment – how hard He will punish our bad clergymen does not bear thinking -, but at the same time he will care that whenever the Church is persecuted she, in times, grows stronger.
Providence at work, and another example just under our eyes of how the Church works; even in the midst of destruction from inside, or persecution from outside.

These aren’t my words, but those of Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, president of the Pontifical Council of Inter-religious Dialogue.
One is reminded of Jesus’ words:
“Go ye therefore, and dialogue with all nations, making friends among them and collaborating with them in the name of humanity”
Or perhaps it was:
“Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the…
