The meeting of the Council of Cardinals
On Wednesday, 19 February, the Pope's third meeting with the Council of Cardinals concluded. While Pope Francis was at the General Audience in St Peter's Square, the cardinals met for a morning session and discussed the most effective ways to organize and divide their work, including their duties in the periods between their meetings.
In the afternoon another meeting took place in Bologna Hall in the Apostolic Palace. Members of the Commission for Reference of the Economic-Administrative Structure of the Holy See, as well as the heads of the dicasteries concerning the financial elements of the Holy See, were present. During the meeting several representatives of the two reference commissions, who were previously heard, gave brief addresses on their work thus-far. In addition, the cardinals' proposals which had been worked on over the past days were presented.
According to the Director of the Holy See Press Office Fr Federico Lombardi, on Tuesday afternoon, the cardinals continued meeting in order to present proposals on the organization and guidance of the economic-administrative work of the Holy See, as well as on the Institute for Works of Religion to the Holy Father. “These proposals”, Fr Lombardi said, “will be in the Pope's hands”.
During the meeting on Tuesday afternoon, they also set the dates for the next meetings of the Council: 28-30 April and 1-4 July.
