The U.S. bishops ended their meeting in Baltimore this week "in hope," in the words of Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, President of the Conference, despite not taking a vote on proposed action addressing the sex abuse crisis. DiNardo had opened the meeting Monday by telling those present that Pope Francis requested a vote on action be delayed until after a scheduled February meeting on the issue is held in Rome. 

"We leave this place committed to taking the strongest possible actions at the earliest possible moment," DiNardo said.  "We will do so in communion with the Universal Church.
