· A conversation with the Bishop of Dallas on the Papal Foundation's work ·
About $80 million has gone to grants and works of charity that are especially dear to the Pontiff's heart. In nearly 25 years of work, the Papal Foundation has fulfilled the desire of a group of U.S. Catholics, thus offering testimony to their commitment to serving the Successor of Peter's mission. Founded in 1988, the institution is governed by a board of trustees including cardinals, who live in the country, and bishops and lay people elected on a local level from various dioceses. Among these is Bishop Kevin Joseph Farrell of Dallas who was in Rome to meet Benedict XVI for the spring pilgrimage of the Foundation.
