The fear of real Roman Curia reform / National Catholic Reporter

A high-ranking Vatican official recently voiced serious doubts about the need to reform the Roman Curia. Believe it or not, he said talk of reform was exaggerated.

“‘I personally can see no significant reason that would necessitate a reform of the Curia at the moment,’ the official said.

“‘One or two changes have been or will be made concerning personnel or structures, but that is part of the normal run of things,’ he continued.

“‘To speak of ‘Curia reform’ is, with all due respect, somewhat of an exaggeration,’ he maintained.

“This wasn’t just any official. It was Archbishop Georg Ganswein, prefect of the papal household. He’s the same one who is the private secretary and housemate of the former pope, Benedict XVI.”
