Ecumenical Consultation: Choose Bishops Locally

More on that Catholic-Orthodox consultation, especially a juicy point that would be a good step in sending CitE* to a happy retirement:

In harmony with the Pope’s universal ecumenical ministry, the Roman curia’s relationship to local bishops and episcopal conferences in the Latin Church would become less centralized:  bishops, for instance, would have more control over the agenda and the final documents of synods, and the selection of bishops would again normally become a local process.

I wonder how this development will fly in orthodox Catholic circles. It’s buried deep in the document, but the Catholic Culture web site put point 7d under its headline.

* Careerism in the Episcopacy
