Long before Pope Francis selected Boston Cardinal Seán O'Malley as the only North American to serve in the pontiff's "kitchen cabinet", O'Malley was a prolific blogger.
Most of the posts on O'Malley's personal blog are reports on his public ministry: visiting parishes, ordaining deacons, meeting with religious orders and diocesan priests about their work in the archdiocese, etc. But in one post this week, there's a hint of what may come from the cabinet's first meeting with Francis on Oct. 1 - 3:
This is an ongoing process and the Holy Father is seeking input from throughout the worldwide Church. One meeting is not going to change everything in the Church, but it will be a start. Certainly, the first order of business will be trying to see what could make the Curia more effective in the service of the Holy Father and the dioceses around the world.
