Motu proprio

In Paul Turner's Blog by Paul Turner

Q: Pope Francis admitted women to the ministries of lector and acolyte by means of a motu proprio—a statement on his own initiative.

Does that mean that other pope could issue another motu proprio and change it all back?


A: Theoretically, yes, but I doubt that that will happen. And if it would, by that time, countless women will already have been instituted into these ministries for a lifetime.
