"In a few days, on March 19, a document of about 200 pages will come out in which Pope Francis will express himself definitively on the themes of the family addressed during the recent Synod, and in particular on the  participation of the faithful who are divorced and remarried in the active life of the Catholic community." —Cardinal Walter Kasper, in the northern Italian city of Lucca, on Monday, March 14, at a parish church, commenting on the upcoming papal document on the Bishops' Synod on the Family

"This will be the first step of a reform that will make the Church turn a page after 1700 years." —Cardinal Kasper, ibid.

"We must not repeat formulas of the past and barricade ourselves behind the wall of exclusivism and clericalism, the Church must live (in) our times and understand how to interpret them." —Cardinal Kasper, ibid.
