He recently revealed this while speaking to the press, and the world has been reacting.
According to him, for the first time ever, he intends to name women for a previously all-male Vatican committee that helps him select the bishops for the world.
He added that gradually, more opportunities will come for women in the nearest future and things will be more equal.
His words, “I am open to giving (women) an opportunity,”
“Two women will be appointed for the first time in the committee to elect bishops in the Congregation for Bishops,”
“This way, things are opening up a bit.”
Pope Francis (Latin: Franciscus; Italian: Francesco; Spanish: Francisco; born Jorge Mario Bergoglio, 17 December 1936) is, as the bishop of Rome, the head of the Catholic Church and sovereign of the Vatican City State.
Francis is the first Jesuit pope, the first from the Americas, the first from the Southern Hemisphere, and the first pope from outside Europe since the Syrian Gregory III, who reigned in the 8th century.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio was born on 17 December 1936 in Flores, a neighborhood of Buenos Aires. He was the eldest of five children of Mario José Bergoglio (1908–1959) and Regina María Sívori (1911–1981). Mario Bergoglio was an Italian immigrant accountant born in Portacomaro (Province of Asti) in Italy’s Piedmont region.
Regina Sívori was a housewife born in Buenos Aires to a family of northern Italian (Piedmontese-Genoese) origin.
