Pope working with Council of Cardinals on Church reforms

Gazzetta del Sud

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 said. 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.
