On behalf of spotlight.africa, Ricardo da Silva SJ interviews bishop, Fritz Lobinger, Bishop Emeritus of Aliwal, South Africa. They discuss his book (TEAMS OF ELDERS: Moving Beyond Viri Probati, by Bishop Fritz Lobinger. Claretian Publications, 2007. 94pp.), in light of Pope Francis' recent comments. Lobinger's ideas were mentioned to the German Bishops in 2015, during their ad limina visit, and more recently (27 January 2019) on board the papal plane returning from World Youth Day in Panama. Lobinger's ideas of having a team of elders, as 'part-time' priests who work alongside 'full-time' priests, is examined.
