Italy: 600 times more full-time Occult workers than Pastors

Spiritually speaking, Europe has become a dark, dark place. Take Italy. I found these statistics staggering.
  • 98% of Italians claim Roman Catholicism as their faith/religion (though far fewer attend mass), but perhaps the true religion of Italy is the Occult.

  • Italy is steeped in the Occult and Satanism. There are over 100,000 full-time consulting magicians (Occult) in Italy. That is three times the number of Catholic priests and 600 times the number of trained pastors in this nation.

  • Evangelicals make up less than 1% of the population; there is only one trained pastor for every 350,000 people. The Italian church is weak and divided.
Pray with me: Lord, we cry out for Italy. Send out labourers into this dark nation. Strengthen those who belong to you there; may they be shining lights for you. Father, wake us up to the realities of the lost around the world--including Europe--and get us moving, in the power of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
