France and Belgium
France guarantees religious freedom as a constitutional right and the Government generally respects this right in practice. A long history of violent conflicts between groups led the state to break its ties with the Catholic Church at the beginning of the last century and to adopt a strong commitment to maintaining a totally secular public sector.
Belgium is a secular state, so there is a complete separation between religion and state. However, Christianity, especially Roman Catholicism, is the predominant religion.
Between 47% and 75% of Belgians are Catholics, but less than 10% of the population considers themselves a practicing Catholic. The second religion is Islam, which represents 6% of the population, Protestants and Orthodox are between 3% and 8%. Those without religion, atheists or agnostics account for 15% or 31%.
Let us pray that God will change the situation in France and Belgium and that there may be a movement of God's power and that many souls may come to the knowledge that only Jesus Christ is our Lord and our only Savior.
