In late February, Pope Francis called the heads of the national conference of bishops from around the world to the Vatican to address the sexual abuse and leadership crisis wracking the church and the faithful. Kim Daniels is the associate director of the Initiative on Catholic Social Thought and Public Life, at Georgetown University. She joins us today to talk about the meeting in February, about reform in the church and what we can look for in terms of next steps.
Late last year Mr. Carr, Director of the initiative on Catholic Social thought and public life at Georgetown University, wrote an article in America names "Eight lessons to help us move forward from the sex abuse crisis". As the heads of all the Bishops' conferences from around the world meet at the Vatican soon to confront this crisis, we invited Mr. Carr to join us and offer us his insights, both about this crisis and in relation to its broader work in his initiative at Georgetown.
