  •  Just one caveat . . . (0+ / 0-)

    Sometimes, the words and public stance of an organization will pull it along and force it to deal with long-standing culture that it never meant to change.  We are dragged by the very force of the things we claim to mean, whether we really mean them or not.  If the Pope continues to preach care for the poor and social inclusion throughout the world, then those speeches will eventually make a difference in how the Vatican operates.  He also isn't consulting with McKinsey about how to streamline and increase profits.  He's asking for outside help in setting up basic accounting controls against graft and corruption, which are rampant inside his organization and requires a powerful, reputable group from outside Europe to counterbalance powerful insiders who are wrapped up in European (Italy/Germany) political squabbles.
