Vatican gets ready to announce ideas to reform the Roman Curia


The Pope is getting ready to announce a list of proposals to reform the Roman Curia. It's something he has been discussing with his closest advisers and it's something he will share with Cardinals starting on Thursday.  

Vatican Spokesperson 
"The meetings will be relatively short, considering you have a large group of cardinals coming from all over the world. But this factor will reflect the global relationship of the Church.” 

The reforms are based on simplifying the structure of the Roman Curia, which includes re-locating Vatican departments and consolidating others. Everything from its Communication Department to the Finance Department. It's an attempt to improve logistics, efficiency and even saving money. 

Vatican Spokesperson 
"The Council also looked at the Secretariat for the Economy and the Council of the Economy and the financing of institutes within these new departments.” 

On Thursday, the Pope and his advisers are planning on sharing these ideas.  From Boston, Archbishop Sean O'Malley could also address the College of Cardinals and share the latest details discussed by the Vatican's Commission for the Protection of Minors.  

The Council of Cardinals will meet again in April from the 13th to the 15th.
