“The liturgy has assumed an even more paramount place in the life of the church. It is for this reason that I have asked Rev. Msgr. Alliegro to assume the rectorship of the cathedral.”

In a way, I find this a little sad. The people of the church grow attached to individual priests and pastors, and those pastors become a definite part of the church experience and the fabric of the church community. When they are transferred, everything changes. The official position of the Church is that everything is the same everywhere, and you can go anywhere you want. It follows then, that they also feel that it matters little who the pastor is, "we'll just give them a new one and everything will be fine".
They couldn't be more wrong.
