Bishop Joseph Strickland of the Diocese of Tyler, goes to one knee Wednesday, Aug. 17, 2016, to greet Betsy Jenkins and her sons, kindergartener Henry, center, and second-grader Bowen as they arrive for the first day of school at St. Gregory Cathedral School in Tyler, Texas.

Pope Francis removed Bishop Strickland, a critic of the Pope, as head of the Diocese of Tyler in East Texas almost four weeks ago, on Nov. 11.
