Pope meets with leaders of Roman Curia

Catholic World News - November 12, 2010

Pope Benedict XVI met on November 12 with the heads of all the major offices of the Roman Curia. Although the Vatican did not announce the purpose of the meeting, informed sources said that the Vatican officials discussed plans for the new Pontifical Council for New Evangelization.

On October 12, the Pope formally inaugurated the new Pontifical Council, with Archbishop Salvatore (Rino) Fisichella as its president. At that time, Archbishop Fisichella said that concrete plans for the work of the new dicastery were still in a formative stage.

The creation of the new Pontifical Council, with a broad mandate to promote the faith in Europe and North America, would probably require shifting some lines of responsibility for other offices of the Roman Curia.
