Bishop Lennon on Fundraising and Pope Francis

It was a lofty goal.  The Catholic Diocese of Cleveland set a goal of $125 million for its Rooted in Faith, Forward in Hope campaign, during a time of strife for the church nationally and locally.  Yet despite the priest sex scandal and local church closings, the goal was exceeded by almost $50 million.

Bishop Richard Lennon and Patrick Grace, Executive Director of the Catholic Community Foundation (pictured here) talk about the campaign, how the money is being used, and what measures have been taken to ensure the money is properly accounted for.

Bishop Lennon also talks about Pope Francis' recent trip to Brazil, and reacts to the Pope's comment about gay priests.
