CWN Editor's Note: Archbishop Luis Ladaria Ferrer, SJ, became the Congregation’s secretary in 2008 and prefect in July 2017. Quoting Cardinal Ratzinger, he said that “we must defend the faith of simple believers, not the faith of theologians,” adding, “We have the task of promoting and defending the Faith, preaching the Faith. This is an eminently pastoral role.”
