"Pope Benedict XVI wants the Catholic Church in America to be in the forefront of reviving Catholicism worldwide..."

Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano.

That's what he said:
"The Church in the United States should lead the entire Church in the world" in a revitalization effort, Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano said. "This is a great task, but you have the determination and the grace to do it. This I know is the vision of the Holy Father regarding the Church in the United States."

The archbishop was speaking to an audience of seminarians and benefactors of the Pontifical College Josephinum at its annual rector's dinner April 23. He called on the American Church to go beyond its mission of evangelizing the United States and "to be missionaries not only to the Third World, but especially to the countries of Europe.
"Christianity (in Europe) in some way has lost its strength and needs an example," he said, noting "very positive signs of growth" in vocations to the priesthood and the religious life in the United States. - Source

Really?  That's what the Pope said?  In that case the Pope must be looking through the Americanist Enlightenment Filter E. Michael Jones speaks about?

I give up.


  1. Do I smell an American pope on the horizon? B-b-b-urke perhaps? God willing!


    1. When I was little I had a dream I was made pope, so in a twisted way - it could hve been foretelling an eventual American pope - which I believe would be a disaster - no matter how good a cardinal he is. It would be a clear sign of the end.
