The head of the Department of the Pope’s Relief Institute and Pope Lieutenant Ravelli was appointed as the Pope’s Lieutenant Chief, and was responsible for the affairs of the Sistine Chapel Choir in the Vatican, replacing Marini’s position. A few days ago, Meng Marini was appointed by Pope Francis as the bishop of the diocese of Tortona, Italy.
(Vatican News Network)Liturgy and the work of the Pope’s Relief Institute: These are the two paths that Ms. Jacob Ravelli (Diego Ravelli) served for the church. Pope Francis appointed Ravelli on October 11 as the Pope’s Lieutenant and is responsible for the affairs of the Sistine Chapel Choir in the Vatican.
Ms. Ravelli was born in Lazarte, Lombardy, northern Italy on November 1, 1965. He was ordained as a priest in 1991 and later joined the Diocese of Villeret in central Italy. In the 2000 jubilee year, he graduated from the Faculty of Education of the Pontifical Catholic University of Rome; 10 years later, he obtained a doctorate in sacred etiquette from the School of Etiquette of the Pontifical Anselmer University in Rome. In 1998, Mgr Ravelli joined the Pope’s Relief Institute and became the director of a department in 2013. After cooperating with the Pope’s Liturgical Office as a liturgical assistant, Ms. Ravelli was appointed as the Pope’s Liturgy in 2006. Now he replaces Guido Marini’s position as the Pope’s Liturgy. The former head of the ceremonial office of the Pope, Marini, served for Benedict XVI and Pope Francis. At the end of August this year, he was appointed bishop of the diocese of Tortona, Italy.
In addition, on October 11, the Pope appointed Father Cristiano Antonietti, the Secretary of the Embassy who served in the General Affairs Department of the Holy See State Council, as the Pope’s Liturgy.
