Cardinal Cañizares Llovera new head of CDW?
The Spanish press has been anticipating for months the appointment of Cardinal Cañizares Llovera of Toledo, Primate of Spain, as the new Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments. In fact, it is no longer considered a rumor, but as a certainty ("Cardinal Cañizares," Rorate Caeli, July 6, 2007). Notably, as one commentator at Rorate Caeli observes, Cardinal Cañizares is known to be a devoted supported of the Tridentine Mass, to have celebrated it himself, fostered it, promoted it among religious orders, and visited the Institute of Christ the King in Gricigliano, Italy. He has been compared to Archbishop Raymond Burke.
