The Church and Lefebvrists: Pope names new vice-president for the Ecclesia Dei Commission

According to the Vatican, "the appointment of a high-ranking prelate to this position is a sign of the Holy Fatherâ??s strong desire for the reconciliation of  traditionalist communities not in union with the See of Peter.â? The Pope is also hoping that Di Noia's strong relationship with the Jewish community, will help solve concerns between Catholics and Jews, especially since Lefebvrists, don't agree with inter-religious dialogue. Di Noia, who is 68 years old, was born in New York and is currently serving as the Archbishop of Oregon City. Up until recently, he served as the secretary for the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments.  That post will now be taken by Bishop Arthur Roche. BR-JMB/KLH RR - - BN
