It has now become customary for the Vatican to publish these
Catholic statistics for the host country
ahead of each papal visit.
They typically tend to be slightly optimistic
and about 9 to 18 months out-of-date
— given that they insist on using numbers that they maintain in Rome
as opposed to those available directly from the country.
The equivalent numbers from my book
“Pope Francis’ U.S. Visit — 2015: A Guide For The Curious“.
It is available from Amazon (worldwide) as an eBook
(that can be read on ANY device) for 99 cents.
A paperback, for $7.50, is also available.
