Pope Francis held a meeting in the Vatican on Tuesday morning with the Council of Cardinals.
It is the fifth time the Pope and the eight-member Council have met formally since Francis established the so-called “G8” to help him govern the Church and reform the Roman Curia.
The Cardinals who make up the Council are Giuseppe Bertello - President of the Pontifical Commission for the Vatican City State, Francisco Javier Errázuriz Ossa - Archbishop Emeritus of Santigo de Chile, Oswald Gracias - Archbishop of Bombay, Reinhard Marx - Archbishop of Munich, Laurent Monsengwo Pasinya - Archbishop of Kinshasa, Seán Patrick O'Malley OFM Cap - Archbishop of Boston, George Pell - Archbishop of Sydney and Óscar Andrés Rodríguez Maradiaga SDB - Archbishop of Tegucigalpa.
They have been appointed with the specific task of advising the Pope on the government of the Universal Church and the revision of the Apostolic Constitution Pastor Bonus on the Roman Curia.
They are scheduled to continue their meetings until Friday, July 4.
Previous meetings of the Council of Cardinals took place from 1 to 3 October 2013, from 3 to 5 December 2013, from 17 to 19 February 2014, and from 28 to 30 April 2014
