Everyone knows that my school of thought about Church reform hinges not on Pope Francis' vision of the Church, although I do appreciate much of his pastoral theology except for that which enables sin rather than repentance, but rather on Pope Benedict's "renewal in continuity" as it concerns Vatican II and his vision of liturgical renewal. Pope Benedict's speech to the curia at Christmas several years ago will serve us well in the future when we have a pope and curia who understand how right Pope Benedict was/is.
Catholic identity in continuity with the pre-Vatican II Church has to be restored. There is no other way out and nothing below makes sense until a recovered and strong Catholic identity exists in the clergy and laity as well as a strong priestly identity of the ordained.
But apart from that, what structures need to be implemented?
1. I think we have to consider ordaining married men as it done in the Eastern Rite and allow wives of married priests to have input on the protection of children and vulnerable adults.
2. Bishops need to have personnel boards which include well-informed laity, men and women and not just priests.
3. Incompetent priests need to be told that if they don't shape up, they will be shipped out--in other words fired.
4. Consultative councils, such as pastoral councils, must include laity who understand what the Church teaches and help priests to make the parish as Catholic as possible.
5. Incompetent bishops need to be held accountable as well.
