After greetings and a prayer led by the Pope at the Vatican, the eighth meeting of the Council of Cardinals began. The group advises the Pope on Vatican reform. Cardinal Reinhard Marx, Archbishop of Munich, said hello in his native German.

"Your holiness, good morning."

As coordinator of the group, Cardinal Maradiaga spoke and thanked the other cardinals.
