Bishop James Wall is the fourth Bishop of the Diocese of Gallup.

Welcome to the second season of CrosierCast!

At the National USCCB meeting in November, the American bishops were set to vote on several action items that would address abuse among high-ranking prelates…until a last-minute directive from the Vatican required them to table the voting.

So has anything been done to address the improper and sometimes criminal conduct that has been reported happening in the Church in recent months? In this first episode of our second season, Bishop Wall gives his perspective, one that comes from experiencing the November meeting firsthand.

Bishop Cary’s comments: “Why not commission an independent study of sexual abuse and coverup by Bishops?”
Bishop Olmsted at the conference: “Here and now our people are angry, embarrassed, confused, and disgusted.”
