Church change not just Pope-led

I WOULD like to ask a bookie to give odds on whether or not Pope Francis would agree with the ideas in Philip O'Neill's letter (Write Back, January 13).

The first big mistake is in thinking that all change comes from the top.

I'm sure Pope Francis would be embarrassed to think he was the only hope for the Church.

Mr O'Neill is also confused about the doctrine of infallibility. Infallibility doesn't mean moral perfection; it means guidance in correct teaching i.e. doctrine.
