    the first steps in an attempt to instill real, actual reform within the Roman Catholic church, or it could just be window dressing, designed to re-engage those on the outskirts.  Time will tell.

    If Pope Francis is sincere about wanting reform, I do think that a gradual approach is the only one that might actually work.

    In general, religions and societies are not terribly amenable to radical reform, particularly when loss of power or privilege in involved.  Just ask Gandhi, or Martin Luther King, Jr., or Oscar Romero - or Jesus himself.
