With Pope Francis back home at the Vatican, people here in the U.S. are reflecting on the messages he shared during his five-day trip to Washington, New York and Philadelphia.

We spoke with Bishop Christopher Coyne, of Burlington, Vermont. He's the incoming chair of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops Communications Committee, and he coordinated media coverage of the pope's visit to the U.S. We asked Bishop Coyne for his thoughts on the pope waiting until the end of his visit to address clergy sexual abuse survivors.
