CWN Editor's Note: Speaking on February 8 to the members of the Dicastery for Divine Worship, Pope Francis said that the Second Vatican Council decided “without liturgical reform, there is not reform of the Church.”

For liturgical reform to be successful, the Pope said, “liturgical formation is necessary—that is, formation in the liturgy and from the liturgy.” He encouraged the dicastery to examine the liturgical formation of the clergy.

Pope Francis also made a point of emphasizing the important role of women in the Church. But he cautioned that the question should not be reduced to the issue of ordination. “One cannot reduce everything to ministeriality,” he said.
