Drawing consciousness to the typical hyperlink of faith, Kelley proclaimed the Extension Society’s responsibility to be that of forestalling American Protestant missionaries, public college academics, and others from isolating humans from their common religion, Catholicism. although household evangelization was once its founding objective, the Extension Society ultimately multiplied past the nationwide border into Mexico in an try and solidify a hemispheric Catholic identity.


Exploring foreign, racial, and non secular implications, Anne M. Martínez’s Catholic Borderlands examines Kelley’s lifestyles and activities, together with occasions at the start of the 20th century that brought on 4 exiled Mexican archbishops to hunt shelter with the Archdiocese of Chicago and befriend Kelley. This courting encouraged Kelley to solidify a dedication to increasing Catholicism in Mexico, Puerto Rico, and the Philippines in line with the nationwide plan of Protestantization, which used to be indiscreetly being classified as “Americanization.” Kelley’s reason intensified because the violence of the Mexican Revolution and the Cristero uprising reverberated throughout nationwide borders. Kelley’s paintings with the U.S. Catholic Church to interfere in Mexico helped move cultural possession of Mexico from Spain to the USA, therefore signaling that Catholics have been thought of no longer foreigners yet heirs to the land in their Catholic forefathers.
