First the Words; Now the Appointments

Vatican Insider is reporting a curial shakeup to be announced tomorrow. Cardinal Piacenza is out at the Congregation for the Clergy to be replaced by Archbishop Beniamino Stella, presently the President of the Academia. Archbishop Eterovic is out at the Secretary for the Synod of  Bishops. This post, which is anticipated to loom large in Francis' plans, goes to Archbishop Lorenzo Baldiserri. The Vatican Insider report neglects to mention one appointment to be announced tomorrow that we be of special interest to Americans!

Unfortunately, the English translation is not up yet, but here is the Italian.

Support independent reporting on important issues.
