New Consultors of the Office of Liturgical Celebrations of the Pontiff

The Holy Father today 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).
