Pope Pius II – “Turn the anger of the Almighty against the godless Turks and Barbarians who despise Christ the Lord…..In the royal city of the east, they have slain the successor of Constantine and his people, desecrated the temples of the Lord, defiled the noble church of Justinian with their Mohometan abominations. Each success, will only be a stepping stone until he has mastered all the Western Monarchs, overthrow the Christian Faith, and imposed the law of his false prophet on the whole world”

Pope Eugene IV, Council of Basel, Session 19, Sept. 7, 1434: “Moreover, we trust that with God’s help another benefit will accrue to the Christian commonwealth; because from this union, once it is established, there is hope that very many from the abominable sect of Mahomet will be converted to the Catholic faith.”

Also saints and Doctors of the Church:

St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica, Pt. II, Q. 12, A. 1, Obj. 2:

“… if anyone were to… worship at the tomb of Mahomet, he would be deemed an apostate.”
~

St. John Bosco: “It would take too long to tell you all the stories about this famous impostor (…) Mohamed’s religion consists of a monstrous mixture of Judaism, Paganism and Christianity. Mohamed propagated his religion, not through miracles or persuasive words, but through the force of arms. [It is] a religion that favors every sort of licentiousness and which, in a short time, allowed Mohamed to become the leader of a troop of brigands. Along with them he raided the countries of the East and conquered the people, not by introducing the Truth, not by miracles or prophecy; but for one reason only: to raise his sword over the heads of the conquered shouting: believe or die.”

  1. Louise says:

    Many Muslims are actually converting to Christianity. Not Catholicism yet, I don’t think.

  2. Manny says:

    Mohammedanism is from the Devil.

  3. Barbara says:

    To his everlasting shame Francis is un-manning his foot soldiers. How can we fight for what we believe if we no longer believe?

  4. Two2trees says:

    Good list.

    We need to understand the knight too, or the footsoldier, going on crusade: the sacraments not necessarily available to him as they soon may not be to us. (That’s a post request.)

    And it is time to pray to Our Lady (of Victory) and pray her rosary every day.
