It is necessasry, according to the judgement of the President of the Episcopal Conference, that one find “new approaches” capable of “helping and guaranteeing that the doors remain open”. fromrome.wordpress.com

The irony is that this is being facilitated by a pope who has spoken often and well about the importance of poverty for clerics.
