Some people think the key challenge for the next Pope will be ensuring doctrinal orthodoxy; others think it will be responding to the sex-abuse scandal; still others, gaining control of the Roman Curia. I think these are all aspects of the same fundamental question: Should Church leaders be held accountable?
For 35 years we’ve had Pontiffs who’ve been extraordinary teachers, fleshing out the vision of Vatican II on the doctrinal/pastoral level. Now maybe it’s time to turn attention to Church administration and governance, to ensure that the vision is applied as practical action.
Today I’ve posted a piece on the Catholic Culture site explaining my thought in a bit more detail. I hope you’ll find it interesting.
