Catholic Church, power to be devolved away from the Vatican?????

I am not a Catholic but those that are tell me that Francis is like a breath of fresh air, however they don't think he will be allowed to make the changes required.(Popes have been killed in the passed)

The suggestion that the Catholic Church, power to be devolved away from the Vatican came from the top.

Yes it's true in the first major work Pope Francis he has written he says just that.

He is open to suggestions to changes in the power of the papacy and he also warns that rising global economic inequality("The rich getting too rich") is bound to cause conflict eventually.
His statement that he preferred a Church that was "bruised, hurting and dirty because it has been out on the streets, rings true for many people.
They see a Church that it is shielded from life and it therefore clings to its own security ahead of everything else.
He said the Church has to get over the attitude that says: "We have always done it this way."
He also appears to restate the Church's opposition to abortion but concedes that "it is also true that we have done little to adequately accompany women in very difficult situations,... especially when the life developing within them is the result of rape or a situation of extreme poverty". "Who can remain unmoved before such painful situations?"
Another of his statements I'm afraid is wishful thinking as you can see.

"I beg the Lord to grant us more politicians who are genuinely disturbed by the state of society, the people, the lives of the poor!" 

I would ad, priests to the people we wish were more genuine and disturbed by the state of society, and the lives of the poor!"
