Priorities for new Pope: Better Management of The Roman Curia


Prefect of the Congregation for the Oriental Churches
"The Pope's resignation put the spotlight on collegiality within the Vatican. He's the boss, the head. So, the Roman Curia should be at his service, cooperating in the episcopal collegiality. From that point of view, it should be organized so it can serve the Pope and the whole Church efficiently.”

So, better Communication is a key part of it, especially between the Pope and dicasteries. With a strong base of communication in Rome, the Church hopes the needs of local parishes will also get the needed attention.
