America’s bishops meet the pope

Every American diocesan bishop will travel to Rome over the next four months for meetings with Pope Francis assessing the state of the Church in the U.S. The U.S. ad limina visit will not only be the first with Pope Francis, but the first since the Church in the U.S, was shaken by a crisis of mistrust in episcopal leadership due to mishandling of sexual abuse allegations against Theodore McCarrick and others.
