CWN Editor's Note: “Don’t go looking for those who have shown they are prudent, measured, and detail-oriented,” said Cardinal Angelo De Donatis, vicar general of Rome since 2017. “We do not need competent and qualified professionals.” Instead, he called for the inclusion of “people who draw outside the lines, people whom the Holy Spirit has made passionate about imperfection ... [who] are able to dream, to infect others with their dreams and want to experience something new.”
