VATICAN CITY, MAR 24, 2006 (VIS) - The day of reflection and prayer held yesterday in the Vatican's Synod Hall in the presence of the members of the College of Cardinals, focussed, in keeping with the wishes of Benedict XVI, on four main subjects, according to a Holy See Press Office communique made public today.

  The first subject, raised by Cardinal Giovanni Battista Re, prefect of the Congregation for Bishops, concerned the mission of bishops emeritus within the Church. Cardinal Dario Castrillon Hoyos, prefect of the Congregation for the Clergy and president of the Pontifical Commission "Ecclesia Dei," introduced the second subject: the efforts made to favor the ecclesial communion of the members of "Fraternity of St. Pius X."

  After the morning session, the cardinals resumed their work at 5 p.m. by considering the third question on the agenda: post-conciliar liturgical reform and the use of the Missal of St. Pius V, presented by Cardinal Francis Arinze, prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments.

  The fourth topic, introduced by Cardinal Secretary of State Angelo Sodano, concerned the Catholic Church's position towards Islam today.

  Various other cardinals also contributed opinions on these subjects before the Holy Father brought the meeting to an end at around 7 p.m.
