Piercing Hearts and Slashing Budgets

On a recent episode of the Gloria Purvis Podcast, Gloria speaks to Bishop Andrew Cozzens, who was appointed by Pope Francis to be bishop of the Diocese of Crookston, Minnesota in 2021. Bishop Cozzens is the chair of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Committee on Evangelization and Catechesis where on behalf of the bishops he is leading a three-year National Eucharistic Revival that began this past June.

Gloria and Bishop Cozzens discuss the meaning of the Eucharist, the plans for the Eucharistic Revival and the modern complexities of dealing with political controversies and communion. Bishop Cozzens also shares the importance of continuing transparency and pastoral leadership amid the sexual abuse crisis.
