Pope Francis has said he has thought about when it might be time to “take leave” of his flock.      

Pope Francis made the comment during his morning homily Tuesday; the Vatican did not release the full text.Chile’s Catholic bishops said Monday (local time) they were open to whatever Pope Francis proposes to overhaul the Chilean church, including the removal of bishops, reforms of seminaries and paying financial reparation to victims of a clergy sex abuse and cover-up scandal.

Pope Francis have said he has thought about when it might be time to “take leave” of his flock.

The Pope was reflecting on St Paul discerning when to leave his flock in the care of others, a decision he said all bishops must make.

He said: “When I read this, I think about myself, because I’m a bishop and I’ll have to take my leave.”

Pope Francis has said retired Pope Benedict XVI “opened a door” to future popes by resigning.

While the 81-year-old Pope has said he did not envisage a long papacy, he hasn’t said explicitly if he’d retire.

Pope Francis may have also been referring to Chilean bishops implicated in a sex abuse cover-up scandal.

Pope Francis summoned the bishops to Rome for an emergency summit after receiving a 2,300 page report on the abuse cover-up scandal, which he had helped fuel.

During a visit to Chile in January, Pope Francis strongly defended a bishop, Juan Barros, who was accused by victims of Chile’s most notorious predator priest of having witnessed and ignored their abuse.

Pope Francis admitted he made “grave errors of judgement” in the case and blamed a “lack of truthful and balanced information” for his missteps.

Representatives of the Chilean bishops conference told reporters they were heading into three days of meetings with Pope Francis humbled, pained and shamed for their own errors in handling abuse cases.

They said they wanted to listen to Pope Francis and would follow his lead in asking forgiveness of the victims they had discredited.

A conference spokesman, Bishop Juan Ignacio Gonzalez, said “it’s possible” some bishops would offer to resign, but that it was up to the pope.
