Next on Pope Francis’ agenda: Curia reform, personnel moves, a revamped synod31/10/2014
Robert Mickens predicts that Pope Francis may now push forward with further reforms to the curia, to strengthen the push toward collegiality.
Pope Francis told bishops attending the recent Synod of Bishops on the family to speak their minds freely and boldly during the two-week-long assembly. And so they did, at least a good many of them. (There were also some who held back, hedging their bets, perhaps as they wait in joyful hope for the coming of the next pontificate.)
