Pope confirms Cardinal Vallini as vicar for Rome
Catholic World News - May 23, 2013
Pope Francis has formally confirmed Cardinal Agostino Vallini as his vicar for the Rome diocese.
Cardinal Vallini was named as vicar general of Rome by Pope Benedict XVI in 2008. As with all major officials of the Roman Curia, his appointment lapsed with the resignation of Benedict XVI. Pope Francis announced on March 16 that he was renewing the appointments of all curial officials “provisionally,” until other provisions are made.
In confirming Cardinal Vallini’s post in Rome, the Pope also confirmed his status as archpriest of the basilica of St. John Lateran and chancellor of the Pontifical Lateran University.
