Rorate Caeli

Complete replacement... the helm of the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts.

On the very day Cardinal Martini became a non-voting Cardinal, a bishop who served under him as Auxiliary of Milan and who was consecrated by him became the head of the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts. Bishop (now Archbishop) Francesco Coccopalmerio replaced Cardinal Herranz in the position of President. Bishop (now Archbishop) Bruno Bertagna, became the Vice-President of the Council.

Father Juan Ignacio Arrieta Ochoa de Chinchetru, of the Holy Cross Prelature (Opus Dei), was named by the Holy Father for the position of Secretary of the Council.

All pontifical legislative texts, including those recent proposals of a very sensitive nature, are screened by the Council.
