On 7 July, along with the publication of the motu proprio Summorum pontificum, the appointment was announced of Monsignor Mario Martini as adjoint Secretary of the «Ecclesia Dei» Pontifical Commission, of which he was till now “permanent expert”. In this new post he will assist the Cardinal President Darío Castrillón Hoyos and the Secretary, Monsignor Camille Perl. Monsignor Marini, originally from the archdiocese of Ravenna-Cervia, was until last March undersecretary of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments. He had previously worked in the Secretariat of State and was office head of the Congregation for the Clergy. He was also recently appointed canon of the chapter of the Vatican Papal Basilica. His nomination strengthens the staff of «Ecclesia Dei» whose role is relaunched by the motu proprio that liberalizes the use of the 1962 missal.
