Sept. 26, 2013
The Vatican announced Sept. 26 that five men were appointed as consultants to the Office of Liturgical Celebrations of the Supreme Pontiff. The office plans the ceremonies of Papal liturgies, and is headed by the Papal master of ceremonies, currently Monsignor Guido Marini. Those appointed are Fr. Silvano Maggiani, Fr. Corrado Maggioni, Fr. Giuseppe Midili, Monsignor Angelo Lameri, and Archimandrite Fr. Manuel Nin. Fr. Maggiani is a professor of liturgy at the Marianum Pontifical faculty and at the St. Anselm Pontifical Athenaeum, and Fr. Maggioni is an office head at the Congregation for Divine Worship.
Fr. Midili, a Carmelite, is director of the Diocese of Rome's liturgical office, and teaches pastoral liturgy at the St. Anselm Pontifical Athenaeum alongside Fr. Maggiani. Monsignor Lameri is a priest of the Diocese of Cremona, and teaches liturgy at the Pontifical Lateran University, while Archimandrite Fr. Nin is rector of the Pontifical Greek College. According to Rorate Caeli, none of the previous members of the office were confirmed. These included Monsignor Nicola Bux, a professor at the Theological Faculty of Puglia, and Monsignor Uwe Michael Lang, a member of the London Oratory and an official of the Congregation for Divine Worship, both of whom had been appointed to the office by Benedict XVI in 2008. Another appointment made today was that of Erna Moller, a Swedish professor of immunology, to the Pontifical Academy of Sciences.
