Speaking to an Italian women's organization Saturday, Pope Francis expressed a desire for women to become more involved in the Catholic Church.


Recalling the "indispensable role" of women in society, Francis said he has been pleased to see women sharing pastoral responsibilities with priests and families, adding he wants women to take on a role that is "more capillary and incisive" in the Church.
