Awakening of the Giant
“The common sense in politics issues”
“In France we saw awakening of a new generation in reaction to Christian values in decline.”
Borioli tells us about new political movement in France – “Sens Commun” It has derived from “La Manif pour Tous”, association that was founded to oppose the “gay marriage” law in France. “Sens Commun” doesn’t want to start up a new party, but enters into french republican party to really represent christian values.

“Awakening the Sleeping Giant and Engaging an Increasingly Secular Europe (and West)”
“Perhaps some of you have been to countries in Western Europe and have attended mass, where only a couple of old ladies attended. Or seen former churches turned into discos, pizzerias, hotels. (…) We could be creative minorities. (…) We should educate people about our faith”
The “Sleeping Giant” are those Christians that somehow live in christian tradition, get married in church, baptize their children. We, the “creative minority”, should invite them to improve their faith. As well as educate the ones who are secularised. Mazurczak gives examples of such actions.
