Pope Francis "systematically" revolutionizing college of bishops and cardinals

Sandro Magister, "The Real Francis Revolution Marches to the Beat of Appointments" (www.chiesa, November 14, 2015): "In the United States and in Italy the changes are most spectacular. With new “Bergoglio-style" bishops and cardinals. In Belgium, Danneels’s revenge against Ratzinger. The triumph of the St. Gallen club."
ROME, November 14, 2015 – Much more than reforming the Vatican curia and finances (to which he is applying himself more out of obligation than out of passion, with no comprehensive plan and too often relying on the wrong men and women), it is clear by now that Pope Francis wants to revolutionize the college of bishops. And he is doing so in a systematic way.

he is certainly revolutionising the college of bishops. The question is, to what end?

Francis is an enigma.

My humble guess is that he has just given up. He accepts there is a heretical strand now in the Church just as there was at the Protestant reformation and he does not have the ability to counter it. But he is not actually supporting it. He is very careful in that, just letting it go.

His successors responsibility perhaps?

Jacobi,

He's the POPE and does not have the ability to counter it??? He's not supporting it but just helplessly watching it take over?

I must say, that is the most contortedly-bent-over-backwards-charitable ultramontaine interpretation I've yet seen.
