Pope Francis To Meet With Cardinals, Discuss Reform

Since becoming the head of the Roman Catholic Church, Pope Francis has made it clear that his papacy will differ from the previous ones. From touching the faithful while riding in an open vehicle, to emphasizing humility and service rather than dogma, the new pope has signaled that significant changes lie ahead for the Church. On Tuesday, the pontiff begins three days of consultations with eight cardinals he has appointed to advise him on what many consider to be desperately needed Vatican reforms.
