Younger Church leaders who understand the world outside the Vatican are needed, reader says

I appreciated editor emeritus John F. Fink’s thoughtful and honest editorial in the May 21 issue of The Criterion (“Sins within the Church”), and I basically agree with everything that he wrote.

But what I think many Catholics believe—I certainly do—is that an effective Church leadership never would have allowed things to reach this point. It is much more than being “behind the times.”

It is a belief that what really is needed to bring about both reform and spiritual renewal are Church leaders who are younger and who better understand the world outside of the Vatican.

As always, thank you for your writing.
