Pope Francis has thanked the members of the Council for the Economy for their reform efforts so far and has encouraged them to recognize their important role.
According to a statement released by the Holy See, yesterday afternoon the Pope participated in the meeting of the Council for the Economy and explained the reason for his visit was “to personally thank and encourage Council members for the important role they fulfil in the vigilance of the financial and administrative structures of the Holy See.”
The Holy Father also confirmed the central role of the council in these reform efforts, to which Pope Francis is committed.
Coordinator of the Council, German Cardinal Reinhard Marx, warmly thanked the Holy Father for his presence at the meeting, on the council’s behalf, and reconfirmed its full commitment to the financial and administrative reforms initiated by Pope Francis.
Since its institution, the Council for the Economy has dedicated significant time and energy to the consideration and eventual implementation of measures aimed at transparency and a more effective management of the resources of the Holy See. (D.C.L.)
