Francis’ Cardinal Council Focusing on Financial Reform, Laity / National Catholic Reporter

While the deliberations of the select group of eight cardinals advising Pope Francis on reforming the governance of the Catholic church remain secret, Tuesday gave several peeks into the shape and contour of the discussions.

“Financial reform is topping the agenda, but laity and family life are also points of discussion.

“The chief concern in this round of meetings, according to the Vatican: how to make sure the financial structures of the church are ‘at the service … of the world and not at the operational service of the Vatican itself’ …

“In his interview, (Honduran Cardinal Oscar) Rodríguez (Maradiaga) also raised an idea he has spoken of previously: that the pope create a congregation at the Vatican dedicated solely to the laity.”

    I wonder how the Catholic Church feels being put in the same category as North Korea ( being sued for Crimes Against Humanity)by the International Criminal Court in the Hague, N. Netherlands??????
    I would say they don’t even care. They feel imunity at the Vatican the same as N. KOREA…what a sickening state of affairs, when a church of God ( supposedly) is compared like these eviI people. Think about it and pray about it and you’ll get your answer. It isn’ t pretty!
