Pope Francis: Women should have greater role in the Church

Pope Francis has granted another interview, this time with the Italian Daily Corriere della sera.

As of 5:45 AM, no English translation of the interview is available. The Wall Street Journal has the most comprehensive summary as of now. Most notable among the Pope’s comments is his suggestion that women should have a greater pastoral role in the Church, not just an increased functionary role in Vatican decision making.

The pope also said that he’s not a superhero, “The pope is a man who laughs, cries, sleeps soundly at night and has friends just like anyone else. A normal person.”
