Vatican Contradicts Archbishop: 2015 Philly Trip NOT Confirmed


The Vatican Sunday issued a statement specifically contradicting Archbishop Chaput's news release confirming the Pope's attendance at the Meeting of Families in Philadelphia in September of next year. The Archbishop's confirmation was downgraded by the Vatican to a "willingness" to visit America del Norte.

It is a pretty big deal to officially confirm the Pope is coming to visit you, then get shot down by the Vatican within 24 hours. What happened? There's no way of telling, but it is disappointing.
