New appointments point toward upgrade of Ecclesia Dei commission


Monsignor Camille Perl, VP of PCED 

Vatican, Mar. 13, 2008 ( – Pope Benedict XVI (bionews) has promoted two officials of the Ecclesia Dei Commmission, apparently upgrading the Vatican body that oversees pastoral provisions for traditionalist Catholics, The Pontiff named Msgr. Camille Perl, who has been the secretary of the Ecclesia Dei commission, as vice-president of the body. He announced that Msgr. Mario Marini, who has been “adjunct secretary,” will now hold the title of secretary. The Ecclesia Dei commission is charged with implementation of the motu proprio allowing broader access to the traditional Latin Mass. The new appointments appear to confirm reports that the Pope would extend the power of the commission, which will soon issue a new document clarifying the terms of Summorum Pontificum.
