Cardinal O’Malley returns from visit with pope


Cardinal Sean O’Malley returned to Boston Tuesday after accompanying Pope Francis on his visit to Cuba and Philadelphia.

At Logan Airport, O’Malley reflected on his visit, describing it as “exhausting” trying to keep up with everything the pope was doing.

“It’s exhausting trying to keep up with him,” said O’Malley. He said the pope was also exhausted on his trip, but still managed to exude “serenity and peace.”

O’Malley also spoke about the pope meeting with abuse victims, including victims of the Catholic church’s sex abuse scandal. O’Malley said the pope is committed to helping those affected.
