Pope Reaches Out to American Catholics
Benedict XVI to visit Washington, D.C., and New York City in April

This commentary is pretty fair in its assessment of the state of the Catholic Church in the US on the eve of Pope Benedict XVI's visit. Usually, I object to hauling out the abuse scandal AGAIN because it is seven years old. That seems like beating a dead horse. This article does this somewhat, but not bad, considering the context.
