Pope Francis Sees "Spiritual Diseases" in the Church

Hosted by

After less than two years as the first Pope from Latin America, Francis today listed 15 "ailments" of the cardinals, bishops and priests who run the Roman Catholic Church — beginning with "feeling immortal, immune or indispensable." This has been "a tumultuous year for the Vatican," with divisions about Pope Francis becoming "glaringly apparent among senior leadership."  The Pope himself has become "more emboldened" about a reform agenda.  That's according to John Allen, veteran Vatican reporter now with the Boston Globe.
