This week's episode of the Walk Humbly Podcast includes:
Bishop Burbidge is back to work and expresses his gratitude for the talented medical professionals who cared for him, as well as for the many people who have offered him their prayers.
At Pope Francis’ request, all U.S. bishops will gather in January for a spiritual retreat to gain clarity about what additional steps must be taken to prevent child sexual abuse by clergy, to provide accountability for bishops, and to help victims in their healing. Bishop Burbidge provides insight on why this retreat is so critical.
In preparation for Our Lord’s birth, Bishop Burbidge offers advice on what we can do to make the best of the remaining days of Advent.
Bishop Burbidge also answers these questions from the faithful:
How might the Church dissuade men who are tempted to abuse children, and help those who have committed child sexual abuse make reparation?
Can the Church start doing “phone confessions”?
