The nomination of Mgr Guido Marini, of the clergy of Genoa, as head of the Offices of liturgical celebrations of the Pope, replacing Mgr Piero Marini (who will be nominated as head of the Pontifical Commission for Eucharistic Congresses) will be announced at the beginning of the coming week (probably Monday). Guido Marini will take possession of the responsibility after 21 October, that is, after the visit of the Pope to Naples. But he will already be present on that occasion together with his predecessor.As the former Archbishop of Southwark, Most Rev Michael Bowen, once said in response to a rumour, "For all I know, it may very well be true."
