New Vatican Prefect

Rocco broke some news:
the Pope has named the primate of Spain, Cardinal Antonio Cañizares Llovera of Toledo, as prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments.

Dubbed the "Ratzingerino" -- the "Little Ratzinger" -- as a collaborator of the then-prefect of the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith, the 63 year-old prelate succeeds Cardinal Francis Arinze, who reached the retirement age of 75 in November 2007.
Interesting development. We might start to see some more twists and turns in the reform of the liturgy, the way PBXVI sees it happening under Llovera's watch.
