Archbp. Piero Marini reported to have had a stroke

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.
