After the restructuring of the Pontifical Commission "Ecclesia Dei", there was a question about whether or not the position of Vice-President had been retained and whether Msgr. Perl might remain part of the Commission.
I have clarified the situation in the simplest way: I asked Msgr. Perl.
The long-suffering, long serving, Msgr. Perl has retired!
I sincerely wish him well. He worked in an unenviable position for over two decades years. He is also one of the kindest people I know in Rome. Certainly one of the kindest clerics!
Msgr. Perl remains a Canon of St. Peter’s Basilica and so he will remain for the time being in Rome.
I sincerely wish Msgr. Perl a happy retirement!
