Italian PM Conte resigns

ITALY - Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte announced his resignation Tuesday, setting the country on an uncertain political course that could lead to a snap election or a new governing alliance. Conte’s move preempted a confidence vote that had been expected to take place 12 days after Matteo Salvini, leader of the far-right League party and Italy's interior minister, called for such a motion. Before announcing his resignation, Conte held a one-hour speech critical of Salvini, noting that the minister's decision to end the coalition government with the populist 5Stars Movement "has major consequences for the country and its economy." ...Hitting back at Conte's comments, Salvini said he would “do everything all over again” and defended his use of religion in political campaigns, which the prime minister had criticized. “I will always invoke the Virgin Mary to guide me,” he said.

Our comment

Point worth noting here.

Mr Slavini, a far right politician, and a Catholic, mixes religion with his politics. Is this going to be a right wing tactic? If he is invoking the Virgin Mary to help him, will Catholics support him?

Here is what appeared in the Plain Truth Magazine way back in 1962:

“United within ancient boundaries of the Holy Roman Empire; united by the common spiritual bond of universal Catholicism; united in a burgeoning and booming industrial economy that dominates today's world; united geographically in the most productive and industrial complex on earth — at least TEN NATIONS OF MODERN EUROPE will march onto the scene of world history as the greatest single human force ever seen by man!” (The Plain Truth, March 1962)

“Just what is an APOSTLE?”
Just what is an Apostle?

Today we find the Church of God in a “wilderness of religious confusion!”

The confusion is not merely around the Church – within the religions of the world outside – but WITHIN the very heart of The True Church itself!
