Thomas Reese: Pope Francis' six-day pastoral visit to Canada was a great success. It wasn't until the news conference on the plane back to Rome that it became clear he wasn't properly briefed for his visit.
While visiting a remote community in the Arctic, the pope addressed environmental concerns. "This land, like every individual and every people, is also fragile, and needs to be cared for," Francis said.
For the first time during his tour of Canada, Pope Francis on July 28 apologized for the "evil" of clergy sex abuse, vowing that Catholic Church leaders must pledge to "never again" allow such atrocities to occur.
