Of the approximately 60 departments in the Holy See, about 10 must be headed by priests because they deal with governance and jurisdiction over other ordained ministers or other sensitive doctrinal matters, the Church says. Francis has promised to put more women in senior roles in those other 50 departments.

Dress code for Papal audiences is somewhat more formal. Vatican City is the only country in Europe with no voting or electoral rights, including no voting rights for women. The Pope , who serves as the head of state , is elected by the College of Cardinals of the Catholic Church. Cardinals in the Catholic Church are required, as of now, to be male, with voting Cardinals generally always Bishops, and only men are eligible to be elected Pope.
With that being said, however, the cardinalate is a privilege and office bestowed by the Pope; it is not a separate, fourth degree of Holy Orders, along with deacon, priest, and Bishop, though it ranks above them, so theoretically, the laws could be amended to allow for women to be Cardinals, though that is very unlikely currently. Vatican City is one of two sovereign states that do not allow divorce , the other being the Republic of the Philippines.

The members of the association are journalists, theologians, and economists. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
