Another personnel decision for Pope Francis: Italian bishops' leadership post
CWN - September 23, 2013
Having made a series of appointments to the Roman Curia, Pope Francis now faces another major personnel decision, as the secretary-general of the Italian bishops’ conference is reaching the end of his term.
The 5-year appointment of Bishop Mariano Crociata will expire on September 25. With the Italian bishops’ conference meeting in Rome, the permanent council of the episcopal conference will conduct a secret vote to renew his appointment or name a new secretary-general. But the results of that vote are not binding; Pope Francis will make the ultimate decision.
