Some observers see Francis’ “most important legacy” in reforming Korea. Ordinary people, both female and male, can now head any Vatican department. An important step is also for women’s participation in the church.
Pope Francis carry out its “revolution”. The new Apostolic Constitution “Gospel of Praise,” proclaimed on March 19th and profound reforms of the Roman Curia, come into force today, Pentecost Sunday. This is a historic step for catholic church34 years after the Korean constitution “reward priest” by Pope John Paul II
Italian media describe the reform of Correa as the “most important legacy” that Francis’ pontificate will leave to his successors. Vatican experts describe the reform as “revolutionary.” According to this, certified laity, male or female, should be able to lead any Vatican department in the future. Until now, the clergy have been conservative. This means that Korea’s current “Pastor’s Reward” (Good Shepherd) constitution of 1988 is completely abolished. It is expected that thanks to this reform, women will be able to play a stronger role in the Vatican.
The head of the Austrian Catholic Women’s Movement (kfbö) sees an important step towards greater participation of women in the Church Angelica Ritter-Gribel, reforming Korea, she told Press am Sonntag. “PopeAppointing women to senior positions strengthens the cause of women,” Ritter Greipel said with conviction.
“Stretch Like a Pie”
This “is found all over the world, across all cultural differences,” according to the association’s president, but sometimes patience runs out. “It stretches like a pie.” The ‘mastermind’ of the office opening is Pope, explained Ritter Greipel. It is currently positioning converging movements, on the one hand “top-down” through the appointments of women in the Vatican, and on the other “bottom-up” through the synodal process underway throughout the world. Ultimately the topic will be ‘How do we deal with the subject of dedication’.
The current text, consisting of 250 articles, has been planned for nine years and has been specifically revised since mid-April 2019. In this way, all members of the Curia should move more towards proclaiming the Gospel. Francis had already expressed this concern in his programmatic letter “Evangelium gaudium” from 2013. For this purpose, a dacha (Vatican department such as the State Secretariat, congregations, courts and councils) will be created for evangelization.
Duplication must be abolished
The reform will reduce the number of Doctors by integrating those with very similar or complementary goals. This is intended to eliminate duplication and avoid overlapping competencies. The goal is to make work more efficient, according to the “Principles and Standards of Service in the Roman Curia”.
Francis upgraded the previous post of the papacy to “a tomb to serve charity.” It must be in the name of Pope Provide and coordinate targeted assistance worldwide in cases of special needs or other needs. Former Social Officer PopeCardinal Konrad Krajewski (58) should keep the office. However, it is still not clear which of the previous heads of authorities will be responsible for the new and merged institutions in the future.

The constitution also includes a paragraph on the subject of sexual assault. The Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors should support the meetings of bishops and bishops in developing strategies to protect minors from sexual abuse, as stated in the section on the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, which should be cases of abuse in the Church. mentioned.
