|Vatican||PENTECOSTALS VISITING ROME|
A group of African American Pentecostal Bishops is visiting the Vatican this week to take part in a three-day seminar at the Pontifical North American College, in an effort to 'recover some of the ancient traditions preserved by the Catholic Church'.
"I think we can learn from each other," Larry Trotter of the Sweet Holy Spirit Full Gospel Baptist Church in Chicago said. "We come with a fervor and fire they may be missing, but they come with order and structure we may be missing."
The Bishops attended yesterday's general audience, according to the Chicago Tribune. They also hope to have a private audience with the Pope.
Pentecostalism is the fastest-growing branch of Protestantism.
