October 20, 2014

Pope Francis has appointed 20 scholars to the Pontifical Biblical Commission for the next five years.

One of them is from the United States: Mary Healy, a professor at Sacred Heart Major Seminary in Detroit.

Founded in 1902, the Commission since 1971 has been an advisory body at the service of the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith. The prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, currently Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Müller, is the commission’s ex-officio president.
