I’ve been digging around about a rumor I heard that Archbp. Piero Marini – formerly papal MC and recently “rehabilitated” as a newly appointed member of the Congregation for Divine Worship. I contacted some folks I know and got a confirmation of the something that I read that hadn’t been sourced.
Marini, it seems, had a stroke on Monday. I don’t know how bad. It is unknown how this will affect his work as a member of the CDW.
In your charity say a prayer for him. He is responsible before God for many influential decisions.
I disagree with nearly everything Marini is about, and I was not happy about his appointment, but in charity we need to pray for him.
