Abp Quinn & Francis

The next time someone tells you that things are not changing in the Church, ask them when was the last time that Archbishop John R. Quinn, emeritus archbishop of San Francisco, was invited to concelebrate Mass with the pope! Here is Quinn's interview at Vatican Insider about Pope Francis and synodality, and that Mass at the Casa Santa Marta where Pope Francis praised Quinn's book.
