The Holy Father named the Rev. Fr. Don Manlio Sodi, S.D.B., President of the Pontifical Academy of Theology. (Holy See Press Office)
Father Sodi is well known to our readers from some past posts (Moved by hatred: the words of an enemy of the motu proprio - I and Moved by hatred: the words of an enemy of the motu proprio - II); he is a Professor at the Salesian Pontifical University and was already a member of the Academy. Sodi is also the organizer of the Monumenta Liturgica Piana collection at the Libreria Editrice Vaticana - which has been a great success only because of the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum, curiously enough.
