Monsignor Mario Marini, Secretary of the Pontifical Commission "Ecclesia Dei", and a true friend of Tradition, died this morning in Rome.
Monsignor Marini, originally of the Archdiocese of Ravenna-Cervia, was, until March 2007, undersecretary of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments. He had previously worked in the Secretariat of State and was office head of the Congregation for the Clergy. He was also a canon of the chapter of the Vatican Basilica.
May he rest in peace.
