Italian Head of State Friendly with the Pope · July 20, 2012

“I do not hesitate to confess that one of the loveliest elements that has marked my experience has been, precisely, my relationship with Benedict XVI,” said Italy’s President Giorgio Napolitano. President Napolitano, an ex-communist and avowed atheist, has been in office since 2006, one year after the election of Pope Benedict XVI.

Pope Benedict XVI and the president recently spent most of a day together at Castel Gandolfo, the papal summer residence. “There they co-hosted a concert by the West-Eastern Divan Orchestra, led by conductor Daniel Barenboim, to mark St. Benedict’s Day. After the musical performance the two men dined together.”
“‘It is such personal encounters,’ said President Napolitano, that he is ‘profoundly grateful for’ because they ‘plucked at our human heart strings… We strolled together, we spoke to each other like people who have a relationship of forthright friendship, with all the respect that I have for him and for his most lofty ministry, for his most exalted mission.’”
 


“Part of the reason why we feel close is because we are both called to govern complex situations,” the president said.

“One particular highlight that the president said he ‘will always cherish’ as a ‘legacy’ of his presidency was Pope Benedict’s 2011 address to the Italian people to mark the 150th anniversary of the country’s unification.

“This really shows that in Italy the state and the church, the people of the Republic and the people of the Church, are very deeply and closely united,” the president said.

Italy has for many centuries been very closely associated with the Vatican. It is in Rome where both nations have their seat of government, though Vatican City is a separate legal entity from the Italian state. Now that Germany, the strongest nation in the European Union is forging a closer alliance with Italy, the Vatican will have more opportunities to influence the future of Europe. The close relationship of the President of Italy with the Pope symbolizes the ancient relationships between the nation state of Italy and the Vatican. This relationship will certainly enhance the rise of the Vatican in the global political order.

“For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies.”

Every marriage must rely on trust – and likewise in our union with Christ, we must remain faithful to Him and His Word. Revelation speaks about the true bride of Christ, but there is another woman who is trying to seduce believers away from God’s Word. Revelation contains a shocking message about Babylon, the other woman. Babylon is fallen, and Christ’s people must escape her charms or perish! Th…
