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.
