By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: Today, during an interview with Reuters, Pope Francis said that he plans to appoint the first two women in history to a Vatican committee.

The Pontiff said that 2 women will “be appointed for the first time in the committee to elect bishops in the Congregation for Bishops.”

In addition, the Pope said that lay women or men could lead the department for Catholic Education and Culture and the Apostolic Library, which are currently led by clergymen.

“I am open to giving [women] an opportunity. This way, things are opening up a bit,” he stated.

Though not yet officially announced, the move is significant since for the first time women will have a say in the appointment of the world’s bishops.

During the interview, the Pope also denied rumors that he planned to resign soon.
