Building a Global Christendom

“Unless a grain of wheat falls to the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies it will bear much fruit.” John 12:24

Does God plan to rebuild Christendom, globally? Is the Holy Spirit inspiring hearts around the world so that the Christendom which went to ground in the sixteenth century may emerge again in a new form? Jesus rose from death with superabundant life. This life He gives to His Church so like Him, despite all attacks, the Church cannot be destroyed.

Christendom is where the ultimate sovereignty of Jesus Christ as God the Son and Redeemer is explicitly recognised and celebrated by the secular authorities. Exactly what form a global Christendom may take we do not know, but we can be absolutely sure of vital principles which have been present in the Church from Her earliest days. The more perfectly men and women practice these enduring principles, the more strongly we can expect to see Christendom emerge.

Listed below are what we regard to be the most essential aspects of Christendom, and we find all of them epitomised beautifully by Queen Isabel the Catholic. It is this, combined with the fact that we have such rich historical documentation of her life, which makes Queen Isabel the perfect study and patron for the building of a renewed and global Christendom. In this hope, successive issues of Isabel Magazine will be treating each of the following themes:

• Christian Unity
• Generosity to the Church
• Interior Life of Faith
• Exterior Signs of Faith
• Defence against Attack Without
• Defence against Corruption Within
• Outward-looking Evangelisation
• Resisting Satan
• Exercising Charity
• The Family
• Loyalty to the Pope
• The Eucharist
• Devotion to Mary
