Pope Francis and his eight-member Council of Cardinals have held their second round of meetings by looking at Vatican offices in an effort to re-organise the Roman Curia.
The Pope and his advisory group began meeting yesterday and are due to go on until Thursday at his Domus Sanctae Marthae.
They began their review of curial offices with the Congregation for Divine Worship.
Vatican spokesman Fr Federico Lombardi said the group also met briefly with the Pope’s new Secretary of State, Archbishop Pietro Parolin.
