• Sean O’Malley, archbishop of Boston.

• George Pell, archbishop of Sydney, Australia.

• Oscar Andres Rodriguez Maradiaga, archbishop of Tegucigalpa, Honduras.

Maradiaga will coordinate the group’s work, while Bishop Marcello Semeraro, of Albano, Italy, will have the role of secretary.

In a brief meeting with journalists Saturday, the Vatican’s chief spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi, stressed that the group will in no way "diminish the role" of the Curia or its responsibilities.

He said that while the Curia remains in charge for the day-to-day task of "helping the pope in the running of the church," the eight cardinals will "advise" the pope when they are requested to do so.

According to Lombardi, the creation of the cardinals’ group is a "signal of the pope’s reflection and attention on the issues facing the organization of the church."
