The Wounded Soul of Europe and the Vision of the European Leadership Forum


It is a sign of extreme alienation from its own heritage that, in the preamble of the constitution of Europe, in the form that was accepted in 2004, Christianity was not even mentioned as one of its spiritual roots. This is the affirmation of an overwhelming fact, namely that Europe has lost its heart. As the prophet Hosea said (Hosea 2: 8) to his adulterous wife, “She has not even acknowledged that I was the One who gave her the grain, the oil and the wine.” Cut off from God, Europe has lost its heart.
