‘Papa’ Francis Extends Controversial Overall of Catholic Litergy

Pope Francis is extending his controversial overhaul of the Vatican’s liturgy department, adding a number of new advisers after an initial shake-up removed some leading conservative Cardinals.

The 17 new advisers named Saturday include priests, laymen and two women.

The experts in liturgy and theology join 27 Cardinals and Bishops named as full members in October. That re-shuffle removed tradition-minded Cardinals Raymond Burke and George Pell from the roster, other conservatives were kept on.

The Vatican Office is responsible for ensuring Masses and other Sacraments are celebrated around the world according to Vatican standards. It is currently headed by conservative Cardinal Robert Sarah.

In July, the Vatican publicly reprimanded Cardinal Sarah for urging priests to celebrate Mass facing away from the congregation, as was done in the pre-Vatican II-style Mass.

Have a terrific weekend.
