CWN Editor's Note: Clericalism is the “sickness” that “we have been fighting against for the past 50 years but have been unable to eradicate,” said Bishop Ricardo Ernesto Centellas Guzman. “So, it isn’t a question of a diaconate for women or viri probati. The problem is the model of the Church. I believe Pope Francis had a special intuition ... when he said that we must invert (the structure); lay people above, clergy below.”
