      VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Pope John Paul (news - web sites) on Friday said Sunday should be a day for God, not for secular diversions like entertainment and sports.

      "When Sunday loses its fundamental meaning and becomes subordinate to a secular concept of 'weekend' dominated by such things as entertainment and sport, people stay locked within a horizon so narrow that they can no longer see the heavens," the pontiff said in a speech to Australian bishops.

      John Paul criticized the "culture of the 'here and now,'" urging Church leaders to "lead men and women from the shadows of moral confusion and ambiguous thinking."

      The 83-year-old pope also encouraged Christians, especially young people, to remain faithful to Sunday Mass, saying the secular culture was undermining family life.

          The article reads:

          "The 83-year-old pope also encouraged Christians, especially young people, to
          remain faithful to Sunday Mass, saying the secular culture was undermining
          family life."

          Since 1648 the worldwide trend has been in a secularist direction, such that
          secularism is now at its height.

          But there are unmistakable signs secularism will fall. Demographic trends are
          not in secularism's favor. And even now secularism is locked in battle with
          Islamism. IMO neither will be the victor in that battle, but instead it will
          be that party which kisses the Koran, holds hands with secularism, yet
          encourages Christianity over secularism- the Romish Papacy. In other words,
          there is good reason to believe superpower status will pass from Washington to
          Rome.

          The Puritan's Home School Curriculum has released its new church history course.
          It is from a post-millennial historicistic perspective. See
          http://www.puritans.net/news/thykingdomcome032404.htm .
