Video: Pope Francis Meets with Cardinal Dolan and USCCB Leadership

From Rome Reports, we have some terrific firsthand footage of Pope Francis’ meeting today with Cardinal Dolan and the leadership of the United States Council of Catholic Bishops:

In attendance with Cardinal Dolan: Archbishop of Louisville Joseph Kurtz, the Archbishop of Seattle Peter Sartain, and the Bishop of Wheeling-Charleston Michael Bransfield.

My favorite aspect of this video is the lack of a voice-over roll, which allows us to hear the actual (and stumbling) dialogue between Pope Francis and these bishops.
