A New Dawn! Pope Francis appoints more women to Vatican posts

In an inspiring move to rewrite the narrative and empower more women, Pope Francis has appointed two women to Vatican posts which was previously held only by men in the male-dominated Holy See.

Nathalie Becquart, 52, a French member of the Xaviere Missionary Sisters was on Saturday appointed to the number 2 spot, as co-undersecretary of the Synod of Bishops, a department which oversees the preparation of major meetings of world bishops held every few years on a different topic and automatically gives her right to vote in the all-male assemblies.

The previous day, Francis named Italian magistrate Catia Summaria as the first woman Promoter of Justice in the Vatican’s Court of Appeals.

According to BBC’s John McManus, the move is not a precursor to ordaining women as priests, to some however, it is a step in the right direction.
