Pope Benedict XVI –according to the Vatican Press Office announcment on May 14th, 2012– appointed Salvatore Martinez as consultor to the Pontifical Council for Promoting the New Evangelisation. He, among other consultors —like Ralph Martin and Moysés Azevedo–, will give assistance to the dicastery on particular issues in the new evangelisation field. We are happy that another member of the CCR has been called to serve the Church at this important level in Vatican. Click here to read the full text of the announcement.
