Incremental change in the Catholic church

I am an incrementalist. Moving toward a more inclusive marriage policy is small step on a long journey. I applaud any change for the good. 

Pope marries couples 'living in sin' in Vatican ceremony:

"Pope Francis married 20 couples on Sunday, some of whom had already lived together and had children, in the latest sign that the Argentine pontiff wants the Catholic church to be more inclusive. In the first wedding he has performed in his 18-month-old papacy, the Pope took each couple through their vows in turn – including Gabriella and Guido, who already had children and thought such a marriage would be impossible, official broadcasting service Radio Vaticana said."
