Early threats to the Church


#1

On Catholic radio last week, Scott Hahn mentioned that one of our early Popes wrote that Russia, China and the Muslim religion were the greatest threats to the Church.

Does anyone know what Pope he was referring to and where I could find a copy of the writing?

Things weren’t so different many years ago, were they?

2000 years later, the warnings and admonitions in Scripture, also, apply today despite our being so much more “civilized”.

Can you tell us which program and the date? We might be able to find something in EWTN’s audio library.
