On October 7, 1571, in the Gulf of
Lepanto the war galleys of the Holy League squared
off against those of the Ottoman Turks, rowed by tens of
thousands of Christian slaves. The battle decided the

Europe came to suffering an Islamic conquest.

Christopher Check, Director of Development for
Catholic Answers, believes that Europe and America without Christ are emptied of meaning and that Islam,
the age-old enemy of the West, is on the rise again.

Blessed Virgin. What will save the Christian West
Christopher Check holds a degree in
English from Rice University. He served for seven years
as a field artillery officer in the Marine Corps. He has
lectured on Church history throughout North America and
Europe and on October 2, 2012 he will be in Forest Lake,
