VATICAN CITY, March 16 (Itar-Tass) – Pope Francis is planning no immediate staff reshuffles in the Roman Curia and asked their staff to carry on their duties.
“Holy Father Francis has expressed the desire that the Heads and members of the Dicasteries of the Roman Curia, as well as their Secretaries, and also the President of the Pontifical Commission for Vatican City State, continue ‘donec aliter provideatur’, that is, provisionally, in their respective positions,” the Holy See Press Office said in a statement on Saturday, March 16 .
“The Holy Father wishes to reserve time for reflection, prayer, and dialogue before any final appointment or confirmation,” it said.
Meanwhile, Vatican City is preparing to receive numerous foreign delegations that will arrive for the pope’s enthronisation on Tuesday, March 19. Over 150 foreign delegations are expected to attend the ceremony. State Duma speaker Sergei Naryshkin will lead the Russian delegation. The U.S. delegation will be headed by Vice President Joe Biden.
The pope is scheduled to meet with fraternal delegates in the Clementine Hall of the Vatican Apostolic Palace on Wednesday, March 20, and with members of the diplomatic corps accredited to the Holy See in the Sala Regia of the Vatican Apostolic Palace on Friday, March 22.
