The present issue of The Angelus relates some pointed moments of Christian civilization throughout the world, and especially in the New World. May it help souls to strengthen their conviction in a crucial moment.
From the first article in this issue by Fr.William J. Slattery, "America's Deeply Catholic Beginnings:"
In the minds of many, the American story is a Protestant story. And yet, a closer examination of historical facts reveals the unexpected: the deeply Catholic beginnings of the United States and Canada. Although long ignored by most academics, since the early twentieth century leading non-Catholic historians have pioneered the reappraisal of North America’s Catholic roots.
