Fatti non Parole. It will be interesting to see what he does with the curial appointments. He has a rare opportunity now to clear the decks. Oremus.
I read that the last Pope took out a non-performing Bishop a month, on average.
For instance, much has been made about his living in an apartment when in Buenos Aires rather than the normal residence, which I gather was rather palatial. Okay, it sounds good, but if the Church still owned the house reserved for the cardinal all it really amounted to was creating a new rent bill for the Church. How does that help anyone? If a person spends more money so that they can live somewhere that looks cheaper then the motive appears to be entirely about how things look, which is not exactly as humble as it seems at first sight.
Just something I am thinking about as I watch and read during these early days of this new papacy.
