*Reichstett/Angelo Marcopolo/
- Amidst the ReVitalizing Oxygen of Green Landscapes at the beautiful Alsacian Village of Reichstett near Strasbourg, looking at the Direction of EU Parliament and CoE straight Ahead at a Bird's Fly, and praised by mainstream Strasbourg Politicians, (including the New Head of French Regions, former Minister, Philippe Richert), for his "Experience, Energy, Capacity and Faithfulness" as they said, the Chief of the main Opposition Party in France, and former President of the Country, Nicolas Sarkozy, an original ChristianDemocrat/EPP, Strongly Bounced Back to his favorite Popular context and Big, "Hot" issues, Focusing Now on Freedom to Debate, People's decisive role, Identity and Assimilation of Migrants, Security and Fight against Terrorism, Boosting Economy and reDynamizing Politics, Concluding by the Urgent Need for New Foundations to Europe, and a Human touch.


 - "I Refuse for Debates to be Muzzled, Silenced or Prohibited !", he Strongly stressed from the outset, (on one of the Rare Key-Points where he didn't Change Oraly his Draft Speech), launching a Call for the People "Not to let anyone Steal your Debates !", and pleading for a Right to Speak for "People's Sovereignity".


This goes, at an immediate term, naturaly for the Current "Primary" Votes inside each Big Political Party before the forthcoming, Crucial 2017 French Presidential Elections (April/May Next Year), but also for eventual National or Eurepean "Referendum on Major Issues of concern to the People", as he said, by a Timely Coincidence, speaking just 1 Day After a World-Famous Hungarian Referendum, by popular Prime Minister Victor Orban (another ChristianDemocrat/EPP) on Sunday, (where he Succeeded to get the support of a much More Greater percentage of Registered Voters, than even EU and/or USA Leaders : See the Facts at ......), while, on the Contrary, in France, the current, outgoing Socialist Government has just Prohibited even a Mayor to make a Popular Referendum in order to Give a Chance to the Local Population to Express its Opinion on an Attempt to relocate, near their Family Homes, Childrens' Schools, etc., a Disproportionate Number of Irregular Migrants from far away Africa and/or Asia, relocated from the notorious "Calais' Jungle", at the Franco-Brittish Borders.


But, possibly also on "Family, a fundamental Institution of our Society, to which many People are strongly attached", he added, (after various, notoriously Popular Struggles to Defend Natural Family and/or Natural Birth and Raising up of Children, against some Controversial and more or less UnPopular attempts to Impose "Same Sex Marriages" and/or Subordination of Children to the Power of Homosexuals on Pretext of "Adoption", often added to the Atrocious "Surrogate Mothers'" Exploitation of Women, and/or to Artificialy "assisted" Births, controlled by Technocrats, with obvious Dangers for all Humankind, as several, still unfolding, recent Events attest, both in Europe and at the USA, etc., (including even a Recent Clash between Pope Francis and a French Minister about denounced attempts to Impose a so-called "Gender Theory" upon School-Children, etc).

- In Wider Terms, "the current (Political) Left, has Betrayed the Workers !", the French Political Leader denounced, (touching upon an obviously "Hot" Point, on which even the American GOP Party Candidate for the Crucial, forthcoming US Presidential Elections, Donald Trump, notoriously Evoked at his landmark Inauguration Speech, Earlier this Summer, at the Republican Party's National Convention, Back on July 2016, at Cleveland, Ohio, tackling Hillary Clinton from her "Left" side, after Sanders' dismissal by the Dems Party Establishment in Controversial Conditions as "Wikileaks" revealed : See "Eurofora"s NewsReport at ....).


Unpredictably Bouncing at the Right Spot, while Entering a Meeting Room (Symbolicaly located at the Local "Sports Center"..., and placed under the Banner "Reichstett Loves Sport !", by its Athletic Mayor, Georges Schuler, New Secretary General of Strasbourg's "Republicans"), Sarkozy suddenly made a Surprize Move, Turning Right in Front of an astonished "Eurofora", among collegues Journalists and many People, Saluted those present, and rushed Back to the Officials' lounge, before getting on the podium.


He was very much Applauded when he praised the People for being "Proud" of their "Identity and (Historic) Roots" at their Land, as he said, before Speaking in favor of a Cultural "Integration" and "Assimilation" of Migrants who wish to Stay in their Host Country in Europe, fustigating f.ex. some excessive "Provocations by a Political Islam", (as, f.ex. a recent Multiplication of "Burquas" ostensibly placed in Public Spaces, Women Obliged to bear "Burkinis" even while Bathing at the Sea (to the point that even Young Children aged only 14, Boys and Girls, were Violently Aggressed by Adults with Clubs and Knives just for Taking a Photo of such an unprecedented spectacle, recently Imported and Imposed at their Home City at Corsica Island, etc), instead of "an Islam of France" or European. If somebody went to the USA like this, he/she would have been Immediately Send Back, he pointed out, Pleading also for "Women's Rights".


Sarkozy also Vowed to Strongly "Fight against those Barbarians of the Islamic State's" (ISIS') Butal Deadly Terrorism, speaking after an Unprecedented Series of Mass Killings, even of Innocent Civilian People, Women, Elders and even Children included, during this Summer 2016, in several European (and even USA) States, including France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, the UK, etc. - "In this War that they have Declared, it will be Us, or Them !", he Firmly reiterated anew, Calling to Stripe from "Double Nationality" and take Security Measures against those for whom there are Serious Grounds to be Suspected as "Jihadists", systematicaly use "Jihadist Propaganda Websites", and have even Prepared to Go Become themselves Jihadists, (f.ex. towards ISIL's HQ at Syria/Iraq, etc. via Turkey a.o., as  had done, f.ex., those Violent Terrorists who cowardly Murdered even an Old Christian Priest recently, inside the Historic, 13th Century Church of Saint-Etienne du Rouvray, as well as Many Other ISIS' inspired Killers of other Innocent Civilian People this Last Summer).


On Europe, inter alia, Sarkozy Criticized those who "still raise the Question of Turkey's (controversial and unpopular) EU bid, even after the UK went Out" after the Recent BREXIT Vote, and Clearly Confirmed his Famous position that "Turkey belongs to Asia Minor, and has No Vocation to Enter inside the EU !", strongly Applauded by the People.


He also Promissed, Today, that, if re-Elected, he will "Go Immediately, on May 6 (2017) to Berlin", in order to Propose, together with German Chancellor Angie Merkel, to Sign a Franco-German Initiative for a New EU Treaty. (In this way, he notoriously expects, also, too eventualy Invite new British Prime Minister Theresa May, to consider eventualy for the UK to re-Join, later-on, a Brand "New Europe").

EU's main Competences should be Focused only on certain Key Areas, such as, f;ex., Agriculture, Scientific/Technological Research, Industry, Energy, Trade, etc., giving "the rest to the (EU Member) States", while, on the Contrary, €urozone Countries (where, as it's well known, any Willing EU Country is Able to Join, whenever it becomes Ready) should get a Strong Governance f.ex. by a Presidency, where core EU Countries such as France and Germany, etc., are naturaly due to assume their Responsibilities and become more Active, in the foreseable Future. (A Plan whose main points Sarkozy had HighLighted initialy, after an Hour-Long previous Exchange with Chancelor Merkel, at a landmark Speech in the Adenauer Foundation at Berlin, as Early as since February 2014 already, at the Invitation of Experienced, former EU Parliament's President, Hans Gert Poettering.


Despite of a Basic reminder of EU's Franco-German ReConciliation and close Cooperation's positive input, mainly by Ensuring Peace for Many Decades in Europe, and another Call for "a New Shengen", since "the Old Shenghen has Collapsed", as he said, nevertheless, probably for Time Restraints, given an Exceptionaly OverLoaded EU and CoE Agenda in Strasbourg these 2 Weeks, Sarkozy didn't, Now, Advance Further on his Views and Intentions about purely European issues, (even if Strasbourg's "Great East" Region's President, Philippe Richert, had earlier Topicaly Reminded the former President of France -and, then, even of the EU-  World Famous Move, already Back on 2008, during the Georgia - Russia Crisis, to immediatelt Fly to Moscow and Tbilisi, meeting and negotiating with the Presidents of Both embattled then Countries, and Succeeding at least to Bring Peace, "Contrary to what Happened, later on 2014, with Ukraine", as he observed, while mutualy Negative, controversial EU/USA "Sanctions" vis a vis Russia, Destructions, Economic Problems, Divisions and even People Killed (including, still, Civilians, even if Less than Back on 2014-2015, perdure at Ukraine's pro-Autonomy Regions of Donetsk-Luhansk), to the point that a New Quadripartite, France - Germany - Russia - Ukraine Summit is currently prepared for an eventual meeting asap.

Benedict's "Source" to revitalize Europe : - "The World needs Hope", Pope says, calling to relaunch E.U. via Human Rights !

Paris - Lourdes - Strasbourg : 12 - 17 September 2008.

The vital need to re-launch Europe can be succesfully met by defending fundamental Human Rights of the People, said Pope Benedict XVI in his 1st speech in France, at his meeting with President Nicolas Sarkozy, who currently chairs the EU.

Sarkozy replied by welcoming Christian and other religions' contribution to indispensable Public Debates on crucial issues which affect Human Dignity, Europe, even Humankind, as BioGenetics.

- "When Europeans will see and personally experience that the inalienable Rights of the Human Person .., those of their free Education, their Family life, their Work, ..their Religious Rights, ..are respected and promoted, then, these Europeans will fully understand the greatness of the European construction and will be actively involved in it", Benedict XVI stressed.

- "It's important that during France's EU Presidency, there is, indeed, a desire for the Church to contribute to protect Human Person's integrity, and I think that there is also a growing Conscience, beyond any polemics, to defend Human Rights, and, thus, contribute to ensure respect for Human Dignity", added to "EuroFora" the Pope's Spokesman, Vatican's Press Director Federico Lombardi.

- "Nobody really told us here that Lisbon Treaty was good for this or that reason to the People. They only told us that we "had" to ratify it, and tried to scare us, but failed", said 2 Irish pilgrims to "EuroFora", after 2 Majority Abstentions in 1999 and 2004 EU Elections and 3 "NO" to Referenda in France and the Netherlands in 2005, followed by the Irish "No" in 2008, during a Decade of EU Crisis since the controversial Turkey EU- bid (1999-2008).

More than .."224 cases of Murders, Torture, "Disappearancies" or Destructions" by "agents of Turkish Security forces", where all those responsible for so heavy Crimes still remain scandalously unpunished, despite regular condemnations of Ankara by Strasbourg''s European Court of Human Rights from 1996 to 2008, were examined the same week by CoE's Ministers, who decided to launch a fresh call "urging" the Turkish Authorities to end this dangerous "virtual Impunity" of criminals, without comparison to European countries.

- "Why not Ukraine, instead of Turkey ?", asked EuroFora a Journalist from "Kiev : the city where it's enough to cross the streets in order to realize that it's a European town", as Sarkozy recently said, before solemnly declaring this week, together with Ukranian President Jushenko and EU Commission's chair Baroso, EU's "recognition that Ukraine is a fully European Country, linked to Europe by culture and History".

Europe's "Christian roots" and Values, with "openess and mutual respect" to other cultures and beliefs, were highlighted by Sarkozy in harmony with Benedict XVI.

The Human person should be protected "from his inception until his natural death", added the Pope, faithful to BioEthic principles defended by his predecessor and collaborator, John Paul II, of topical importance in France, Europe and the World today, as Sarkozy announced :

- "Fast and important progres in Genetic Science and procreation raise delicate BioEthical Questions to our Democracies", which "involve our view of Humans and Life, and can lead to Social Mutations. That's why they cannot remain only a business of experts", hestressed.

- "It's Politician's responsibility to set a proper framework for such Public Debates", as "France will do on BioEthics in 2009". "Religious and Philosophic traditions must take part, with their ideas and centuries' long experience : A positive Laicity is an open invitation to Dialogue", he said.

- "France engaged in Europe at another Debate on how to make Financial Capitalism more moral", and the "Social doctrine of the Church fits well what is at stake in modern Globalized Economy"

- "But, a "Real Dialogue is not for an elite of a Globalized world : It penetrates deep into the People : That's why Churches should actively participate : .. It's bringing New Oxygen to Public Debates", stressed Sarkozy.

- "Democracy must not be cut off Reason", which is "compatible with Faith", thanks to "the meeting between Christianism and Greek philosophy ", he added, referring to Pope's views. "It means to advance with logic arguments, search what's best and respect common principles of thinking :... It's an everyday need for Public Administration and the Political Debate", he added.
----------------------------
Pope Benedict's 1st visit to France looked like the start of a brillant, manifold demonstration that this was well-founded and could become true in the lives of the People : After its Theoretical foundations unfolded at a "speech to the world of Culture", inaugurating Bernadins' cultural centre, and its dogmatic instrument shaped at an address to the Clergy in the Historic Notre Dame' Cathedral, he started to resolutely reach out to the People :

The move went upwards like Bach's music : Begining with a call to more than fifteen thousand enthousiastic Youngsters gathered at Notre Dame's parvis with overnight celebrations, it gained strength in an impressive open-air Mass at Paris'central Invalides'area facing Alexander III's bridge, attended by more than 150.000 people, French Prime Minister Fillon, many Ministers, Foreign Ambassadors, etc, and culminated in a series of pan-European Mega-meetings at Lourdes 150th anniversary, together with all French Bishops, EU Commission's vice-Chairman Barrot, and some 200.000 enthousiastic People from all over Europe and beyond : After a Sea of Lights astonishingly braved Saturday Night's rain, an open-air mass at riverside fields among Pyrenees' Mountains Sunday Morning, was followed on Monday by a Sea of "Compassion" to those facing Health or Life threats, surrounded by an endless gathering of People, whose gigantic dimensions obviously surprised the organisers..

Meanwhile, Benedict had the occasion to speak to the French Priests at Notre Dame of Paris, and with the Bishops at Lourdes, where they prepare a crucial November plenary meeting, due to take important decisions on imminent EU debates and choices about Europe's identity, BioEthics, etc.
-------
- "A new way of thinking about Laicity has become necessary", agreed the Pope with President Sarkozy at Elysee. While keeping the "distinction between Politics and Religion, to guarantee Citizens' Liberty", "religion is important for shaping Consciousness and contributing, together with others, to create a basic Ethical Consensus in society".

- "Searching Essential realities", (as "God" for christians), needs "Speech : "Logos" in greek, i.e. Reason", "able to shape a Community","with creative work transforming Human History". But "Dialogue" is instrumental for "Reason", because it's the way to "search" for Truth", in "Liberty", according to Greek Platonic Philosophy, with Socrates' dialectics. "Reason" implies "Spirit and Liberty", hence the polyphonic "Music" of "Dialogue", in a responsible, "well balanced" way, to avoid "destruction".

Starting with a "Dialogue between christians and intellectual or artistic movements" highlighted at Bernardins' Cultural Center. with former Presidents Chirac and Giscard d'Estain, UNESCO's chair Anastassopoulos, etc., as well as representatives of Muslim Communities, (including a separate Turkish), after contacts with Jews at Vatican's Embassy, the Pope turned towards the People :

To French Priests : "Church built on the rock" !
---------------------

dsc01076_400


- Speaking to thousands of French Priests at Notre Dame's Cathedral, Benedict highlighted a solid "Church built on the Rock" of conscious and active persons, transmitting "a lively, energetic and sharp" "God's Speech, actively working on Human History".

"Praying together" with "representatives of Christian Churches and ecclesiastic communities", (as Orthodoxes, Armenians, Protestants, etc), he called "to reinforce the Unity of the church", against "any form of Division", around Holy Spirit', "the Word","Christ's Justice", and "Love" to fellow- humans : Essentials which "resume all holy scripts", as he said.

To Young People : "New Horizons"
------------------------
To some 15.000 enthousiastic Young People at Notre Dame's parvis, along Seine's river, Benedict spoke about "the Energy of the Holy Spirit" and "the Mystery of the Cross" : - "The Holy Spirit opens New Horizons to Human Intelligence .. and makes it conscious of the real greatness of Christ's sacrifice, dying and resurecting for World's life".

Some "may slander you as crazy, laugh at you, or even persecute you. But, "the Holy Cross is a symbol of God's love", and "givesmoral strength" : "Witness of People's pains, it's at the same time, a precious, unique expression of their Hopes", he told them at Paris' dawn.

Invalides' plateau : "People chosen to become God's friends"
---------------------------------------
At the 1st open-air Mass in Paris' center area of Invalides, facing the Grand Palais, along the river Seine, during an impressive gathering of more than 150.000, French Prime Minister Fillon, Ministers Alliot-Marie, Bachelot, Dati, Jouyet, Assembly's President Accoyer, Senate's Chair Poncelet, former 1st Lady Bernadette Chirac, former Prime Minister Raffarin, many foreign Ambassadors, and other political personalities were present. (While earlier, from the Socialist opposition, Paris' Mayor Delanoye, artist Robert Hussein a.o. assisted at the Elysee meeting).

But the "Entry Song" focused on the "People chosen to become God's Friends". The September 11 mass was Dedicated to "Saint Chrysostomus, that great priest of Constantinople", with his "wonderful eloquence and great courage to face challenges", who "made out of despaired and godless people, a people of brothers", opening a possibility to "become all one complete entity", as Pope Benedict reminded.

- "Reason never enters in real contradiction with Faith", stressed Pope Benedict, who prepared his speeches for France during a short Summer rest at Brixen/Bressanone's Seminar, whose Library honors both "Faith and Science".. - "We must use not only our Reason, but also our Faith" : "Get away from Idolatry", "cupidity", "avidity for money, power or even knowledge deviating from essential aims", and other "falses appearances". and "build your Home on the Rock", "with the force that Holy Spirit gives to those who let it act in them", he said to the People of Paris.

Benedict at Lourdes : - "Become Light (even) in the Dark !"
------------------------------------------------------------------
- "Our World needs Hope", stressed Pope Benedict, addressing an impressive TorchLight procession at Lourdes' sanctuaries, where a Sea of Lights held by Hundreds of Thousands of People gathered at Pyrenee's Mountains from all over Europe astonishingly kept their flames despite a heavy Rain at a windy Dark Night...

- "150 years earlier (1858 - 2008), ..here, in the cave, ... a simple young girl, Bernadette .. saw a Light". "The everyday life of her Family was, however, made of Misery, Sadness, Sickness, Misunderstandings, Rejection and Poverty... It was hard to live in Jail". Today, "we think to all Human Beings who suffer : The innocent Victims who face Violence, War, Terrorism, Hunger, Injustices, Catastrophes, Hate and Oppression, Violations of Human Dignity and of their fundamental Rights, of their Liberty to act and think. We also think to those who face Familial problems, sufferings from Unemployment, Sickness, Infirmity, Isolation, or their situation as Immigrants, without forgetting those who suffer and die for the name of Christ", he said.

- "But the Shadows of the Earth, did not hinder Sky's Light to shine : <<The Light shines in the Dark>>" ..."A Way full of Light opens in Human History even in its Darkest moments" : ..."As Night falls, Christ tels us : <<- Keep your Lamps alight !>>."Hold a Light while walking in the Night .. sums up our condition as Christians on their way : "We need light, and we are called to become Light !", Benedict stressed to People setting in motion Lights, Flags and Songs with enthousiasm.

"<<- She looked at me as a Person, who speaks to another Person>>, the poor girl had noted."Light emerges from such a Dialogue", stressed the Pope : "A small Flame called Hope, Compassion and Tenderness dwells inside those who return after being moved by Lourdes' experience". "Christ .. entrusts us with the Mission to let the Light of Charity shine : To make of our Prayers an Act of Love to our brothers and to Fraternal Charity", he concluded.
