Pope Francis begins his campaign against the Italian Curia.

This news item doesn't seem to have broken yet in English-language sources. The Pope has criticised the arrogance of Italian Bishops, their taste for money, their complacency and their ambition. At last someone prepared to stand up to them!! And he doesn't mince his words.

See here.

But we should also take his words to heart ourselves as a wake up call for all Christians to resist complacency in the living out of their faith and respond afresh each day to his call to follow him.

UPDATE: I've been sent this today.
