Vatican City, Apr 23, 2022 / 06:10 am
Pope Francis on Saturday appointed secretaries of the doctrinal and disciplinary sections of the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF).
The pope named Monsignor Armando Matteo, 51, as the secretary of the doctrinal section of the CDF and Monsignor John Joseph Kennedy, 53, as the secretary of its disciplinary section on April 23.
Cardinal Luis Ladaria, 78, remains as the head of the CDF with the new appointments. He has served as its prefect since July 2017.
Under Pope Francis’ reform of the Roman Curia, solidified by the implementation of the apostolic constitution, Praedicate evangelium (“Preach the Gospel”) last month, the internal structure of the CDF has been reorganized into two sections.
