On October 15, 2020, two days after the last online meeting of the Council of Cardinals — entity created in 2013 to help the Pope in the reform of the Roman Curia — the Holy Father Francis confirmed the Council’s existing six Members and the Coordinator and appointed a new Member as well as a new Secretary.

Henceforth it will be known as the “C7,” which includes the existing six Cardinals now joined by Cardinal Fridolin Ambongo Besungu, Archbishop of Kinshasa, in the Democratic Republic of Congo, stated a press release of the Holy See Press Office.

Cardinal Besungu, 60, has a Licentiate in Moral Theology from Rome’s Alfonsina Academy. He has taught Moral Theology at the Catholic University of Kinshasa and at the Major Seminary of Saint Peter and Saint Paul in Lisala.

Praise the Lord
