Cupich, Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga of Honduras, Cardinal Luis Antonio Tagle of Manila, Philippines, Jesuit Father James Martin, Anglican Archbishop Justin Welby and Carolyn Woo, the former head of Catholic Relief Services and a CNS columnist, explore the pope's use of words such as "joy," "clericalism," "money," "family" and "tears."
