Archbishop Angelo Amato SDB, secretary of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, has been appointed as prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints.

Fr. Luis Francisco Ladaria Ferrer SJ has been appointed as secretary of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, and made an Archbishop.
