This week I covered the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops' Fall General Meeting in Baltimore. In this podcast, hear my reflections on the abrupt change of plans, when Pope Francis told the Bishops not to take action on two crucial issues concerning the clergy abuse crisis. It was frustrating for Bishops because they wanted to at least appear to be taking charge and moving forward on finding solutions. Many felt the pope had essentially hog tied them, crippling their efforts to take decisive action. But now all eyes will focus on Rome, when the heads of all the bishops' conference around the world will meet with the Holy Father, to find global solutions to what has become a global problem.
