New Secretary of State to be appointed soon?

http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/n...nted-soon/

"Rumors have emerged that Archbishop Pietro Parolin, apostolic nuncio to Venezuela, will shortly be appointed as the Vatican's Secretary of State."

This part made my heart sink some:

"A new prefect for the Congregation of Divine Worship and the Sacraments should soon be appointed, as well.

The current prefect, Cardinal Antonio Canizares Llovera, would be appointed as the successor to Cardinal Antonio Maria Rouco Varela as the Archbishop of Madrid, Spain.

To cover his post, Pope Francis would call Archbishop Piero Marini, who was Pontifical Master of Ceremonies during Bl. John Paul II’s Pontificate and now heads the Vatican’s commission for Eucharistic Congresses."

I really hope that is not true.  If so, it pretty much tells us all we need to know about the direction of the liturgical life of the Church.
