Vatican Spokesperson
"One of the points the commission developed, and that the cardinals reflected on for quite a bit, was the mission of the IOR. They looked into the matters regarding this institution and how they pertain to the mission of the Church, and not just it's economic procedures.” 

In addition to the mission, the cardinals also began talking about the future of the institution, although the Vatican said they had made no decisions so far.

Fr. Lombardi also added that Secretary of State Pietro Parolin has been present and has participated during all of the sessions to date. For the third and last day of talks on Wednesday, the Council of Cardinals will meet with the 15 cardinals that oversee the Vatican's balance sheets.
