Curia, Pontiff discuss response to Evangelii Gaudium

April 01, 2014

Pope Francis met for more than 2 hours with the leaders of the Roman Curia on April 1, discussing how the Vatican could carry out the message of the Pope's apostolic exhortation, Evangelii Gaudium.

The meeting-- the 2nd such meeting between the Pope and the top officials of the Curia-- was not open to the press, and the Vatican did not issue any detailed report on the conversations. Father Ciro Benedettini, the deputy director of the Vatican press office, told reporters that the session was devoted to an exchange of ideas on how the Vatican could put into practice the ideas set forth in the papal document, which called for a renewed dedication to the Church's mission of evangelization.
