Results of Papal Meeting with U.S. Bishops

Pope Francis held a much ballyhooed meeting with American bishops following the latest uproar over the Pennsylvania grand jury report on sex abuse in the Catholic Church. The results: “US bishops say meeting with Francis on clergy abuse was 'lengthy, fruitful'.” This is something the Vatican might say about the pope’s special commission on child abuse, now over five years old. The only specific result was the pope’s accepting the resignation of yet another bishop enmeshed in this scandal.
