Ecumenism Rewritten by Enzo Bianchi and Alberto Melloni by Sandro Magister
The leaders of the “school of Bologna” have a very ambitious new project in the works: a history of the movement for Christian unity aimed at a thorough reform of the Catholic Church, starting with the dismantling of the papacy in its current form. They believe they have an ally in Pope Francis

Before (and during?) the extraordinary synod, Cardinal Kasper claimed the support of Pope Francis for bringing his initiative to discussion. Perhaps the pope only supported that the proposal be discussed, not the proposal itself - he seems to have high regard for Kasper's theology. Did Kasper misrepresent the Holy Father in any way?
