Francis, “Deaconettes,” and the St. Gallen Mafia

“No,” Pope Francis said. He was answering Norah O’Donnell’s question about whether “a little girl growing up Catholic today” could “ever have the opportunity to be a deacon and participate as a clergy member in the Church.” Directly and tersely, the pope said, “No.” It was a seemingly definitive response—and across the social media site … Read more

A Successor for the St. Gallen Mafia?

On April 8, 2024, Cardinal Victor Manuel “Tucho” Fernández sat for a press conference about his new document Dignitas Infinita.  He was the recently-appointed head of the Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith (D.D.F.)—entrusted by the pope with changing the office’s reputation for policing orthodoxy. “The Dicastery over which you will preside in other … Read more
