Gorbachev a Christian?

“Spiritual Perestroika” is the phrase used to describe the visit of Mikhail Gorbachev to Assisi where he prayed at the tomb of St. Francis. The former head of the Communist block professed his Christian faith. wgorbachev119b.jpg

Hmnnn. One hopes it is an authentic conversion.

Oddly enough, since the death of Pope John Paul II some interesting events have happened–particularly in Europe and Russia. For example, Malta, Poland and Ireland have recently resisted the European Union’s demand for universal abortion throughout the EU. As the Pope who understood the intercession of Our Lady of Fatima, perhaps we ought not be too surprised at this news of Gorbachev ‘s faith.
