Pope Francis has named a married lay man as head of a Vatican dicastery, a position usually reserved for clergy. 

Paolo Ruffini is the new prefect of the Dicastery for Communication. 

The 57-year-old was previously the director of TV2000, the channel of the Italian bishops.

The pope has entrusted the Vatican's communication strategy to a renowned expert in the sector, a journalist who has been in management since 2014. 

Ruffini will oversee the Vatican press office and communication outlets, ranging from radio to the Vatican News site.
