I had my doubts that it would actually happen, but it is now official.
This morning Pope Benedict XVI
– Appointed Archbishop Piero Marini, master of Papal Liturgical Celebrations, as president of the Pontifical Committee for International Eucharistic Congresses.

– Appointed Fr. Guido Marini of the clergy of the archdiocese of Genoa, Italy, as master of Papal Liturgical Celebrations.

To get used to the new change, click on Piero’s picture.
This may rile some in the blogosphere, but I am disappointed in Archbishop Marini’s new assignment. I think he deserves something much better.
