Restructuring of Roman Curia next on agenda for Pope, Council of Cardinals
Catholic World News - April 16, 2014
Having resolved questions about Vatican financial affairs, Pope Francis and his 8-member Council of Cardinals will now turn their attention to a restructuring of the Roman Curia, writes Andrea Tornielli of La Stampa.
Plans for curial reform were temporarily shelved, Tornielli reports, while the Pope and the Council of Cardinals studied proposals for the future of the Vatican bank and the creation of a new Secretariat for the Economy. At their next sessions, beginning April 27, the Pope and his advisers will consider proposals for streamlining the Curia. Vatican insiders expect a reduction in the number of congregations and pontifical councils, with some offices being combined and others possibly eliminated.
