What is the Roman Curia?

"The Roman Curia is the complex of dicasteries and institutes which help the Roman Pontiff in the exercise of his supreme pastoral office for the good and service of the whole Church and of the particular Churches. It thus strengthens the unity of the faith and the communion of the people of God and promotes the mission proper to the Church in the world." - Ap. Const. Pastor Bonus, Art. 1

Liberal Churchmen[edit]

There is a sub-section of the Secretariat of State that has been described by observers as a State within a State because of the influence of a secretive liberal lobby within the curial department. While the Church's diplomats are generally known to be more concerned about diplomatic and political activities than actual spirituality, there should be additional information about such claims on activist liberals who work within the Holy See itself.
