Over 50 Muslims convert to Catholicism in Vienna, Austria

According to a report from an Austrian media, Kurier; the Austrian Bishops’ Conference have estimated that over fifty (50) Muslims including people who practice other religions have been converted to Catholicism and will be baptized this year.

Most of the Muslims who have converted to Catholicism are mainly migrants from Syria, Afghanistan, and Iran. This figure is up from one-third in 2015. The Austrian Bishop conference has estimated that the rising number of Muslims-converting-to-Catholicism is expected to increase in 2017 due to the fact that there has been an increase in the number of refugees arriving in Vienna in recent months and because the conversion process, known as the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, takes up to a year to complete.

The Archdiocese in Vienna is handling between five and 10 adult baptism requests per week, Kurier says.

    Regarding the initiation of 50 Muslim refuges to Christianity, the article states, ” … because there has been an increase in the number of refugees arriving …” I don’t buy that for one minute. Is ot the refuge importation that caused this? The initiation of Muslims to Christianity may be due to their removal from a Muslim environment; however, their removal from Muslim environment is not the same as devoting the cause of conversion to their arrival in a Christian nation. We cannot forget that there are thousands of hard core Muslim “refuges” and fifty alleged converts. In addition, we cannot forget the numbers of anti-Christian acts that these “refuges” have brought with them as these fifty members converted. Even when considering the salvation of souls, we must consider the citizens of the nations that are swarmed by these Muslims, those willing and those unwilling to accept these refuges. Most citizens had no say in allowing the influx of these people. What is the cost? If we are to convert Muslims, why are we not doing so in their own countries after defeating the regimes that foster anti-Christian sentiment?

    Welcome to the Catholic family! In the grand scheme of things, that’s not a lot of people, but that’s 50 more than we had. I pray that they will be welcomed into the church and that they will be a bridge of peace between the Muslim community and the Europeans.
