Chilean Bishops Resign & Francis Appoints New Cardinals (2 segments)
Description: On Friday, every single Chilean bishop resigned following a meeting at the Vatican to discuss the ongoing Chilean sex abuse scandal. The bishops have returned to work and will see if Pope Francis accepts their resignation immediately, rejects it outright or waits to accept it until he can find replacements. Meanwhile, on Sunday Francis announced the creation of 14 new cardinals, who will be installed on June 29. Matthew Bunson gives us the latest.
