French Salesian Sister Yvonne Reungo (in photo with Pope Francis) told Vida Nueva, a Spanish publication, that “the ideal bishop does not exist.” But he has to be a shepherd who is “close to the people entrusted to him, he has to know how to involve priests, laity and religious, and people of different generations”.

Last July, Pope Francis named 14 new members to the Dicastery responsible for helping the pope choose bishops. For the first time ever, the members included women: two religious and one lay. Before Pope Francis’ reform of the Roman Curia took effect in June, members of the Dicastery were only cardinals and a few bishops.
