It was hard to keep our comments and attention on this past weekend's liturgy when we were all still riding the Pope Francis "high" but Linda and Joanne managed to do just that -- and THEN talked about all things papal. It was a great week to be Catholic but it wasn't without a few bumps along the way. Join us as we recap this historic occasion which will set us up for next week's episode with Joanne welcoming Bishop Christopher Coyne, Ordinary of the Diocese of Burlington, VT, to take us on a "behind the scenes" look at this historic visit. Enjoy!

Honorable Mentions

Check out Bishop Chris' website to see all the information he posted during his week in charge of the communications and media arm of the USCCB. He and his team worked very hard to accommodate all the media outlets, foreign press and social media needs. It was indeed a job well done!
