|Piero Marini, New Prefect of the |
Congregation for Divine Worship?
(Vatican) Will Archbishop Piero Marini (not to be confused with the current papal master of ceremonies Guido Marini) be the new Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments? Voices are coming to agreement. Some have no doubts any longer.
The Catholic monthly magazine Il Timone reported on its website that there is no longer any doubt for a certain "high prelate": "The decision has been made on him. There is only a notice lacking."
1987-2007 Papal Master of Ceremonies With a Lack of Liturgical Sensibility
Piero Marini was papal master of ceremonies 1987-2007 under Pope John Paul II. He was confirmed by Pope Benedict XVI. in this office dismissed and replaced at the end of his regular term of office by Msgr. Guido Marini. Despite the similarity of names there is no relationship between the two. Especially the liturgical sensibility which is markedly different, which was the reason for the personnel reshuffle under Benedict XVI.
The now 72 year old Piero Marini never forgave Benedict XVI. for his removal from office and publicly made no bones about it after his resignation. Immediately after the election of Pope Francis it was first speculated there would be a dismissal of Master of Ceremonies Guido Marini and the return of Piero Marini in his old office. The reason for this was that Pope Francis summoned Piero Marini on April 4, 2013, just three weeks after his election as head of the church and received in audience. The content of the conversation was not known, but the audience was unusually early (see Guido Marini again instead of new (old) master of ceremonies - Piero Marini in audience with Pope Francis ).
Under Francis 'One Breathes Fresh Air After Swampy-stuffy Air"
Piero Marini said in an interview shortly afterwards, under Pope Francis "one breathes fresh air after the swampy-stuffy air" under Benedict XVI. At the same time the Curial Archbishop spoke of an "opening" of the Church For homosexuals (see Ex-Master of Ceremonies Piero Marini: Under Francis "one breathes fresh air after swampy-stuffy air" ). Soon afterwards there were Vatican rumors for Pope Francis to raise Piero Marini much higher and make him Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship (see Piero Marini next Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship? rumors about personnel changes at the Vatican? )
On August 28, Cardinal Antonio Cañizares Llovera the then reigning Prefect and the new archbishop of Valencia, which meant his removal from the Roman Curia. The appointment of a successor has not yet been announced, but is likely to be imminent. For more than one voice in Rome, the new prefect, the "choreographer" and "designer" of the event appearances and event vestments of Pope John Paul II. for which Benedict XVI. began, with the help of Msgr. Guido Marini, to reject the permanent new acquisitions and to exploit the rich fund the papal vestments of his (pre-conciliar) predecessors and recover sacredness.
