Council of Cardinals meets to discuss curial reform

Catholic World News - April 28, 2014

The Council of Cardinals—the advisory body that assists Pope Francis is the governance of the universal Church—is holding its fourth meeting from April 28 to 30.

The members of Council are discussing a draft revision to Pastor Bonus, St. John Paul II’s 1988 apostolic constitution on the Roman Curia. St. Pius X (1908) and Venerable Paul VI (1967) had previously undertaken significant curial reforms.
