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.

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.”
