Press release from WAC Italy
Pope Francis spoke with the Vatican curia this morning. He denounced fifteen possible sins of those who live in the Curia; who knows, but up close and from afar, he knows how real and widespread these are. Francis proves to be familiar with those around him with analytical insights, almost " pictorial", of the environment of the Vatican ( but also of many diocesan situations , at least in Italy ) . We wholeheartedly agree with Pope Francis (how many times have we thought and said the same thing !).
Before the general restructuring that we are awaiting, we would like to " help " by proposing five reforms which can be implemented quite straightforwardly and painlessly (meaning they do not question theological doctrines):
1 ) Prohibit everywhere from tomorrow morning all the ridiculous honorary titles that are now use ( Excellency, Eminence etc ... );
2 ) For some time each new assignment in the Curia, also the most important, is attributed to women (and not only religious) ;
3 ) To each member of the Curia are assigned material conditions of life (home , pay etc ... . ) of true sobriety , identical , for example , to those of Pope Francis S. Marta ;
4 ) All positions in the Curia , to be always for a specific time, provide for the periodic return to the diocese or parish or mission ;
5 ) Core competencies in the area of liturgy are devolved from the Vatican to dioceses and parishes , of course in a rational and prudent manner.
