In a recent opinion piece for CNN, Alice Laffey, associate professor of religious studies at the College of the Holy Cross, explains how Pope Francis is shifting emphasis and establishing different priorities in the Catholic Church with his recent changes to the Congregation for Bishops.
“Consistent with Francis’ own witness to date and his efforts so far to renew the Curia (the Vatican bureaucracy), this appointment of carefully selected men to the Congregation for Bishops, men who share his priorities, may well be the most powerful tool available to him to effect far-reaching and sustained change — in every parish throughout the entire world,” said Laffey.
