Council of Cardinal Advisers

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Council of Cardinals (called C9 due to the fact it contained 9 cardinal members for some time), also known as the Council of Cardinal Advisers, is a group of cardinals of the Catholic Church appointed by Pope Francis to serve as his advisers. Announced on 13 April 2013, one month after his election, it was formally established on 28 September of the same year.[1][2]

The council currently has seven members, following the decision by Pope Francis to remove three of its members in late 2018[3] and the appointment of another in 2020.[4]

Leadership and membership

The council currently comprises seven cardinals, assisted by Bishop Marco Mellino as its secretary.[5][6][7]

The council is coordinated by Cardinal Rodríguez Maradiaga.[8]

At the time of its formation, the council had eight members. Cardinal Parolin was not among the council's original membership, but attended the meetings regularly and, in July 2014, was confirmed by the Holy See Press Office as a ninth member of the council.[9]
