A flurry of appointments to Roman Curia

Catholic World News - June 26, 2012

The Vatican on June 25 announced a series of important appointments to positions on the Roman Curia.

Traditionally the Pope makes many personnel decisions before leaving Rome for his annual stay at Castel Gandolfo. Pope Benedict XVI is expected to move to the summer apostolic palace next week.

Conspicuously missing from the June 25 announcements was any mention of the top office at the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. Vatican insiders have said that Cardinal William Levada, the prefect of the Vatican’s doctrinal office, will retire this month.
