With Francis, 'we will see change in Church' says cardinal

Vatican City, March 14 - Canadian Cardinal Jean-Claude Turcotte said Thursday he expected to see "change" in the Catholic Church now that Francis is pope. "I'm sure that in a few years you will see change in the Church," said the archbishop emeritus of Montreal the day after Jorge Mario Bergoglio, the archbishop of Buenos Aires, was elevated to the throne of St Peter. "I have known him for many years. I was always struck by the man, who is a holy, holy man, a man of prayer. "I'm sure that as pope he would like to correct things. The Church has flaws. We cannot accept that," he said in a press conference joined by fellow Canadian cardinal Thomas Christopher Collins, the archbishop of Toronto. "He's not going to change the Gospel, don't worry about that," said Turcotte.
