  • Description

    THE PRIMATE OF BELGIUM, CARDINAL SUENENS, HAS SPOKEN OUT STRONGLY IN FAVOUR OF FUNDAMENTAL CHANGES IN THE WAY OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH IS RUN. ONE OF HIS MAIN ARGUMENTS IS THAT POPES SHOULD BE ELECTED BY A BODY MUCH MORE REPRESENTATIVE IN AGE AND NATIONALITY THAN THE 136 CARDINALS.

    CARDINAL SUENENS HAS ALSO CALLED FOR A COMPLETE UPDATING OF THE ROMAN CURIA, THE POPE'S CIVIL SERVICE, AND FOR BISHOPS TO BE ALLOWED MORE PART IN DECISION MAKING.

    THE CARDINAL, CONSIDERED BY MANY TO BE THE OUTSTANDING LEADER OF MODERATE ROMAN CATHOLIC OPINION, HAS EMPHASISED THAT HE IS "NO INTERESTING REVOLUTIONARY."
