Curious Curial Moves, including Pont. Comm. “Ecclesia Dei” …
Posted on 26 June 2012 by Fr. John Zuhlsdorf
American Archbishop Augustine DiNoia, O.P., is moving from the Congregation for Divine Worship to be the Vice President of the Pontifical Commission “Ecclesia Dei“.
I am not sure where the present Secretary Msgr. Pozzo is going… or if he is staying. He could stay, as well, for the sake of continuity. It could be that he will be moved up somewhere else. There is a lot of voltage at the bottom of the ticket, to use American political terms.
My take on this move of Archbp. DiNoia to the PCED is that the rapprochement between the Holy See and the SSPX is going to take place.
Archbp. DiNoia worked for a long time in the CDF. He knows his way around over there. The Commission, already part of the CDF, needed to be beefed up so that it will be better able stand the impact should some bishop out there try to run them over.
