This week on “Inside the Vatican,” America’s new Vatican news explainer podcast, producer Colleen Dulle and Vatican correspondent Gerard O’Connell unpack the final document from the Synod on Young People.

The hosts also look behind the headlines of Pope Francis’ puzzling comments about abuse accusations being a form of persecution. Was the pope referring to legitimate accusations of sexual abuse, or something else entirely?
