Aspectos canónicos del servicio en la Curia romana
Improving ecclesial governance entails improving the governance of persons. Service in the Roman Curia is marked by the distinction between the system of government and that of public service. The system of government is predominantly comprised of members of the clergy and, for this reason, is conditioned by the personal canonical status of the office-holders (cardinal, episcopal, priestly). Some sources of dysfunction in the Roman Curia could be overcome by harmonizing functions of government with the personal condition of the office-holder. The system of public service –predominately lay–, with follows canonical criteria regarding both the suitability of candidates and working conditions, could be improved by introducing good-market practices.
