A Vatican Spring?

At The New York Times, Hans Küng considers the possibility of a “Vatican Spring” following the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI. Küng looks at the evolution of the structure of the Church, noting that it was not always so monarchical and opposed to reform. Küng writes, “In this dramatic situation the church needs a pope who’s not living intellectually in the Middle Ages, who doesn’t champion any kind of medieval theology, liturgy or church constitution. It needs a pope who is open to the concerns of the Reformation, to modernity.”
