Comment: With Latin influence in the U.S. rising with the growth of the American Spanish-speaking population, it is both interesting and significant that the Pope selected a member of the reactionary, fascist-connected Opus Dei  to be the Archbishop of Los Angeles. This appointment continues a pattern of convergence  between the Vatican and Opus Dei dating to the ascension of John Paul II to the Papacy.
The new Archbishop of Los Angeles is going to be Mexican-born Jose Gomez, 58. The Pope named the new Archbishop of L.A. today to succeed archbishop, Cardinal Roger Mahony. . . .
