The Complete Texts of the Holy Father’s 1998 ad Limina Addresses to the Bishops of the United States

On November 9, 1978, barely a month after he had been elected pope, John Paul II addressed the first group of American bishops on an ad limina visit to Rome. This volume, Springtime of Evangelization, brings together a whole year of addresses to American bishops while marking the 20th anniversary of the Holy Father’s first discourse to the U.S. hierarchy.

Although his tone is generally positive, the pope does not shrink from speaking out against trends in the Church in America and in American society at large that troubled him.

The pope identifies:

  • What the bishops must do to combat the “widespread fear and moral confusion” of our time
  • The spiritual crisis in American society
  • The “dulling of consciences” to crimes against life
  • Why the beginning of the Third Millennium is an authentic “Catholic moment,” a tremendous opportunity to draw souls into the Church
  • The greatest problem for the bishops
  • America’s desperate need
  • The supreme importance of “correct and worthy celebration” of the Mass, promoting adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, and encouraging frequent confession
  • The bishop’s personal responsibility to teach the faith
  • Why Catholic colleges and universities in the United States must return to fidelity to Catholic teaching
  • How some bishops have eliminated the “vocation shortage” in their dioceses
  • A reminder that the priest “is the servant of the liturgy, not its inventor or producer”

“We are confident that, as the Third Millennium approaches, God is preparing a great springtime for Christianity.” —Pope John Paul II

“John Paul II has an extraordinary grasp of the modern -- and especially the modern ‘American’ -- spiritual terrain.” —Most Rev. Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M., Cap., Archbishop of Denver
