He said that the secretary of the “C9” Council of Cardinals examining the issue of Curial reform , Bishop Marcello Semeraro , gave a brief presentation of the subjects under consideration. Those present were then permitted to contribute their opinions which will be taken into account in future meetings of the C9 , scheduled for 9 , 10 and 11 December.
