Putting aside for the moment my mixed--but on balance, negative-- feelings about the Catholic Church, I have to think that, by establishing a precedent for resignation, Pope Benedict may have opened the door to a new reformation within the church.

The Church is a gargantuan global enterprise and its practice of appointing superannuated clerics for a life term is not widely recommended in management circles.

It remains to be seen, however, whether the Church will take this opportunity to reform its leadership selection, appointment and tenure practices.


That makes sense to me, Bro, particularly if reforms includes the rest of the hierarchy within the Vatican and, of course, a complete new deal for the sisters. As is all too common, all the resources are at the top, all the workers are at the bottom.
