Texas is today an American state that is almost entirely Catholic, however this was not always the case, as this short article makes clear. During the young Twentieth Century the Catholic Arch Diocese saw fit to harness the wonders of the internal combustion engine and create a "mobile chapel" in order to help bring an end to the Protestant dominance of Texas. However, in the end it was not the Churchmobile per se that raised the number of Catholics in the region so much as the rising tide of uncontrolled immigration from the bordering nation of Mexico.
In it's defense, however, it should be noted that the "Churchmobile" did get remarkable mileage.
