It had made rapid strides forward:

> Married Priests. The Germany-Brazil Axis (12.1.2016)

– the collegial exercise of the episcopacy and the restitution to the bishop of full authority over the diocesan liturgy;
– the formation of presbyters, with the rethinking of the Tridentine form of the seminary and the possibility of ordaining married men;
– the theology of the diaconate and the possibility of a female diaconate.
