Two recent Popes on American independence
This post over at The American Catholic provides excerpts from statements by the current pope, Benedict XVI, and his immediate predecessor, Bl. John Paul II, on the American experiment in ordered liberty: Pope Benedict XVI & John Paul II on America's Founding. The popes stress the centrality of both freedom and moral order to the American Founding. Well worth a read to get some insight to the significance that the Vatican places on the creation of the American Republic.
