New papal nuncio see bright future for Church in US

Catholic World News - November 15, 2011

Pope Benedict XVI is “putting great hope in the Church in this country,” a new apostolic nuncio told the members of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB).

In his first address to the USCCB since his October appointment, Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano said that he too was optimistic about the future of the Church in America. He spoke of the enormous vitality he has found in the US, abiding religious faith of the nation’s people. “This nation, at its very core, maintains the very notion of trust in God,” he said.
