Pope working with Council of Cardinals on Church reforms


Vatican City, April 28 - A three-day meeting of the
Council of Cardinals steering wide-ranging reforms to the Rome
Curia, began Monday with Pope Francis, the Vatican press office
Pope Francis has taken part in much of the work,
coordinated by Honduran Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga,
leaving only for public commitments including general audiences
and meetings with international figures, the press office said.
The council of eight cardinals, which has been informally
dubbed the C8, has been closely studying changes to governance
of the Catholic Church as well as possible reforms to the
constitution of the Vatican City State, known as Pastor Bonus,
instituted in 1988 by Pope John Paul II.
Sources have said that the cardinals are not working under
a tight deadline but instead are expected to take enough time
for an in-depth study.
Pope Francis has been making some wide-ranging reforms to
Vatican organizations, including the scandal-tainted economic
administration and the Vatican Bank, changes in the senior
hierarchy of the Church, as well shaping new policies to deal
with sexual abuse by priests.
