Council of Cardinals sets dates for new meetings in December

Catholic World News - October 04, 2013

The Council of Cardinals, which concluded a 3-day series of meetings with Pope Francis on October 4, will convene again in early December, the Vatican has announced.

The Vatican’s spokesman, Father Federico Lombardi, had earlier speculated that the Council of Cardinals would hold its next series of meetings early in 2014. But the group chose to schedule its next sessions for December 3-5, with another set of meetings to take place in February 2014. “This will enable the work of the Council… to proceed at a rapid pace,” the Vatican press office announced.

Although the Vatican is not issuing formal announcements about the discussions of the 8 cardinals chosen by the Pontiff as his special advisers, Father Lombardi has disclosed that the group is planning a thorough overhaul of the structure of the Roman Curia.
