Editor R. R. Reno is joined by Fr. Timothy J. Cusick to talk about his article from the March print edition, “Priestly Poverty.” They discuss how the clerical abuse scandal undermined the authority of the priesthood in the eyes of many Catholics, and how a new emphasis on evangelical poverty might restore public trust.
