New openings, theological and ecumenical, by Pope Francis

From Cloe Taddei-Ferretti, some interesting points made by Pope Francis in an interview in the Civilta' Cattolica:

PADARO, «Intervista a Papa Francesco», in La Civiltà Cattolica 164 (2013)/III 449-477; su "le altre scienze e la loro evoluzione", ivi pp. 475-476; su "ciò che lo Spirito ha seminato negli altri come un dono anche per noi", ivi p. 466.

the first: in dealing with theological issues, the pope says we should take into account exegesis, developments in theology, as well as other sciences and their evolution. The last, according to Cloe, opens up new perspectives, on issues such as women's ordination, etc.

The second is ecumenical: the pope refers to 'other churches' and what the Spirit has 'sowed' in them as a gift for us.
