appointed several excellent new Consultors to the Office of Liturgical Celebrations of the Supreme Pontiff. Among them are two men well known to NLM readers and whose appointment especially is a cause for joy: Fr Uwe Michael Lang, Cong.Orat., Official of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments and author of "Turning Towards the Lord: Orientation in Liturgical Prayer", and Msgr. Nicola Bux, frequent writer on liturgical questions, already a consultor of the CDF and a personal friend of the Pope. You can search the NLM archives for both to find further information; the image shows Msgr Bux and Fr Lang together with Archbishop Ranjith at the presentation of the Italian edition of Fr Lang's book.
The other newly named Consultors are: Fr Paul C.F. Gunter, O.S.B., of the Pontifical Liturgical Institute at the Pontifical Athenaeum of S. Anselmo and a member of the editorial board of the new academic journal Usus Antiquior; Fr Mauro Gagliardi, lecturer at the Pontifical Athenaeum "Regina Apostolorum" (Legionaries of Christ); and Fr Juan José Silvestre Valor, lecturer at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross (Opus Dei).
