Transforming the Catholic Church

Former Governor of the Bank of France and former managing director of the International Monetary Fund, Michel Camdessus is a committed Christian. He was also a member of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace.

Isabelle de Gaulmyn is the chief editor of the daily paper La Croix. She was for many years a correspondent for La Croix in Rome. She has published biographies about the last two popes: Benoît XVI, le pape incompris and François, un pape pour tous. Her lastest book, Les cathos n’ont pas dit leur dernier mot, was published in 2020.

In line with the conference that we organised with Cardinals Marx, Omella and De Kesel a few months ago, Michel Camdessus and Isabelle de Gaulmyn agreed to participate in our forum to talk about: Transforming the Catholic Church.

What kind of Church do we want to see emerge from the trials it has faced in the last years? What roles can the ordinary faithful, women and men, celibate or married, play in its future? Is it really the right time to renew and reform the Church, as Pope Francis encourages us to do? The conference speakers will reflect on such issues and more, and examine possible solutions, as, both firmly convinced and hopeful, they look back on the 2000-year-old history of the Church in western Europe.
