Cardinal Roger Mahony steps down as the leader of the Los Angeles Archdiocese Sunday.

Mahony is retiring after leading the nation's most populous archdiocese for more than 25 years. His tenure was tainted by the clergy abuse scandal, which cost the archdiocese a record $660 million.

Mahony will be succeeded by Archbishop Jose Gomez.
