    The Vatican announced on Wednesday that women and lay people will be able to vote in the next general assembly of bishops, a symbolic change for the Catholic Church. The next phase of the global consultation on the future of the Church will take place in October in Rome, and for the first time, the right to cast ballots will not be reserved to male clerics. 70 people will also be chosen to take part, who represent various groupings of the faithful of the People of God.
