Please pray for the Holy Father as he prepares to travel to Valencia, Spain today to defend the family! Spain is 94% Catholic, but Socialist Prime Minister José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero has done a lot against the Church and therefore against Christ.
Since taking office in 2004, Zapatero's government has either adopted or discussed legislation in favor of:
* Same-sex marriage legislation;
* Fast-track divorces;
* Curbing religious education in state schools;
* Supporting embryonic stem-cell research;
* Easing abortion laws;
* Reducing or eliminating public funding for the church.
Just days ago, the Prime Minister funded an event organized by the Federation of Lesbians, Gays, Transsexuals and Bisexuals, in Valencia!!! These people insulted the Holy Father and carrying signs around saying "I'm not waiting for you" and even worse, "God does not exist"!!! There is to be a nude cycling contest when the Holy Father arrives!! (Source)
The Holy Father is schedule to meet with the Prime Minister on Saturday, July 8, 2006, at 6:30 p.m. Saturday local time. The Prime Minister has refused to attend the Mass where the King and Queen of Spain will attend with an expected 1.5 million Spanish citizens.
Spain is a highly Catholic nation but is falling to the "dictatorship of relativism". We must pray for the success for the Holy Father's visit.
