Piero Marini's Departure; Guido Marini's Ascendence

"Monsignor Guido Marini will replace Archbishop Piero Marini as the pope’s Master of Ceremonies, meaning the official in charge of how the pope celebrates the Mass and the other rites of the church"
reports John L. Allen, Jr. of NCR Cafe. Yes, I loathe the newspaper, but not Allen. Check out Allen's full article which does an excellent job of explaining why the Pope's Masses in different parts of the world have been full of outrageous behaviors. You won't be too surprised once you find out the the departing Archbishop Piero Marini used to be the
"personal secretary to Archbishop Annibale Bugnini, head of the special Vatican commission that oversaw liturgical reform."
