This week's episode of the Walk Humbly Podcast focuses on the Meeting of U.S. Bishops this past week:
The U.S. Bishops gathered for their annual Fall General Assembly and focused their attention almost exclusively on the sexual abuse crisis and stronger accountability for bishops. Bishop Burbidge discusses his reaction to a surprising Monday announcement from the Holy See, what the Bishops discussed, and why he is hopeful that needed reforms are forthcoming.
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops approved the publication of a document on racism, titled “Open Wide Our Hearts: The Enduring Call to Love, a Pastoral Letter Against Racism.” Bishop Burbidge discusses this document and what it communicates.
Bishop Burbidge also answers these questions from the faithful:
How does the Bishop manage the sexual abuse crisis of the Church on a daily basis?
What are some of Bishop Burbidge’s responsibilities as the new Communications Chair for the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops?
