Spanish cardinal to head supervisory commission for Vatican bank
Catholic World News - March 04, 2014
Cardinal Santos Abril y Castello has been named the president of the commission of cardinals supervising the Vatican bank, the Institute for Religious Works (IOR).
In January, Pope Francis replaced four of the five members of the supervisory committee. At the time it was widely reported that Cardinal Abril y Castello, who is archpriest of the Roman basilica of St. Mary Major, would head the newly reconstituted commission. The Vatican confirmed on March 4 that the Spanish cardinal would occupy that post.
