Bishop Deeley Meets with Pope Francis (Pictures)

Bishop Robert P. Deeley met with Pope Francis on Thursday, November 7, during an “ad limina apostolorum” visit to the Vatican. All bishops are required to travel to Rome to visit with the Holy Father and report on the state of their dioceses as well as make a pilgrimage to “the threshold of the apostles,” giving the bishops, who are the successors of the apostles, the opportunity to pray at the tombs of St. Peter and St. Paul.
