This week's episode of the Walk Humbly Podcast includes:

  • Bishop Burbidge returns from visiting seminarians at 3 different seminaries. Hear about why he finds it important to sit down personally with each young man in formation for the priesthood.
  • After 44 U.S. senators voted against a bill that would strengthen legal constraints against infanticide, Bishop Burbidge was shocked and appalled. Hear what he says this vote should mean for Catholics.
  • On Feb. 13, the Diocese of Arlington released the names of priests who have been credibly accused of sexual abuse of a minor dating back to the founding of the Diocese in 1974. Bishop Burbidge speaks about what this means for the Diocese and how he remains open to meeting personally with victims of childhood sexual abuse.
  • Pope Francis concluded a multi-day summit on Rome on the topic of clergy sexual abuse of minors. Learn about what was said and how the laity played an important role in the summit.


Bishop Burbidge also answers these questions from the faithful:

  • Why can't the Church allow priests to marry and women to become priests?
  • I have read conflicting information regarding divorced Catholics who cannot receive Communion. If the first marriage didn't take place in the Church and the second marriage also didn't take place in the Church, am I forbidden to partake in Communion?
