Please let it be true. The rumor is stiffening that Papal Master of Ceremonies Piero "Cats" Marini is soon to be assigned to outdoor maintenance at the curial retreat house in Point Barrow, Alaska, and that a clergyman more sympathetic to Pope Benedict's liturgical vision will replace him.

A figure of controversy among ritualists and a Capricorn, Marini was not without supporters, most notably at the Beauty Tips for Ministers blog. It is our hope that his experience in the use of the damp-iron technique for the rochet will have lasting benefits for the life of the subarctic Church.

An appeal from our founder, Dr. Jeffrey Mirus:
