The Six Most Important Reforms Voice of the Faithful Would Like Pope Francis To Discuss with His Advisors In October

Pope Francis meets in Rome Oct. 1-3 with his eight cardinal advisors on Church governance. Voice of the Faithful® would like at least the following six reforms to be on the Pope’s agenda, and as a start, Voice of the Faithful sent a letter to Pope Francis in late August asking that a VOTF proposed for a change in the process of bishop selection be placed on the agenda:

1. Disciplinary action for any bishop who has covered up clergy sexual abuse

2. The ordination to the priesthood of married Catholic men

3. An expanded role for clergy and laity in selecting local bishops

4. The ordination of women to the diaconate

5. Removal of the mandate against the Leadership Conference of Women Religious

6. Financial accountability and transparency
