"I do feel that Catholics should expect lots of changes, in the sense of direction. But I don't think we could say that after the meeting there will be dramatic changes. No I don't expect that.”

During their first meeting back in October, the group talked about the family, the Synod of Bishops and the role of the Secretariat of State. The third meeting, scheduled on February 17th and 18th, will be held before the consistory, where Pope Francis names new cardinals. 

The meetings will conclude on December 5th. The sessions will take place in the mornings and afternoons. But perhaps the Pope won't attend the Wednesday morning session, because of the general audience.
