Marini new Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship? For some, there are no more doubts about it...
Il Timone [September 22, 2014]

Will Archbishop Piero Marini be the new Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of Sacraments? According to a high-ranking prelate there are no doubts about it: he has been chosen for the position, only the official announcement is needed.

Marini, 72, was the Master of Pontifical Liturgical Ceremonies for John Paul II and Benedict XVI, from 1987 to November 1, 2007.

He would replace Cardinal Antonio Cañizares Llovera who was named Archbishop of Valencia this past August 28.
