Hungary Wonders After…

Pal Schmidt the president of Hungary met with Benedict XVI on September 10. Hungary’s government will hold the rotating presidency of the European Union for the first half of 2011.

As usual Schmitt also met with Papal secretary of State Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone and with Archbishop Dominique Mamberti, Vatican secretary for relations with states.

A Vatican communiqué said that discussions involved the contribution of the Catholic Church to the common good in Hungary, “especially in the area of family and social life.”

Note the words “common good,” “family” and “social life.” These terms are nice sounding language for the agenda that the Vatican is pushing in Hungary and the rest of the European Union. It would certainly include Sunday observance, since the Church teaches that Sunday observance is in the best interests of family and the common good of society.

The leaders also discussed the upcoming presidency of the European Union in relation to international politics.

Hungary is a slight majority Roman Catholic population with 54.5% of the nearly 10 million people.
