The Holy Father Francis, after hearing the Council of Cardinals, has decided to convene a meeting with the presidents of the Episcopal Conferences of the Catholic Church on the theme of the “protection of minors”.
The meeting with the Pope will be held in the Vatican from 21 to 24 February 2019.
During the 26th meeting, which took place from 10 to 12 of this month, the Council reflected extensively together with the Holy Father on the theme of abuse, issuing the Communiqué published by the Holy See Press Office on 10 September.
As it proceeds in the work of the reform of the Roman Curia, the Council has concluded its rereading of the texts already prepared; the pastoral care of the staff who work there has also been a cause of attention.
