New Pope Seems Ready to Take Aim on Clericalism

The New Pope’s Real Target: Clericalism

And now comes Francis. It will not take him long to recognize the extent of clericalism rampant in the Curia and to realize how it corrupts the church and strangles the Holy Spirit. Even before he arrived for the election, he was undoubtedly aware of clericalism and its effects in other countries. I want to believe he is laying down a kind of platform to reconnect the church of this era to the Spirit that inspired the early Christians and authentic leaders, like Francis of Assisi, to both proclaim the gospel and live it.” By Robert McClory, National Catholic Reporter
