Letter from the Pope
Pope Francis called for “the observance of common norms” in order to “to guarantee the correct procedure of the work” in the Roman Curia and in the institutions associated with the Holy See, and
to ensure for all “impartial treatment, including economic retribution”. The invitation is contained in a letter addressed to Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Secretary of State. In it the Pope recalls in particular that, as the reform of the Curia, on which the Council of Cardinals is working, moves forward, the norms of the Pastor Bonus and the Regulations inherent to the organization and staff of the various institutions remain fully in effect. Thus it follows that, among other things, the hiring and transferral of personnel “must be effected within the framework of the organizational structure,excluding all other criteria, with the approval of the Secretariat of State and in keeping with the prescribed procedures, including reference to the established retributive scale”.
