EWTN Catholic Q&A
former secretary
Question from Ernie on 04-16-2005:

What happens to the wonderful secretary that was always standing next to the Holy Father(I think he is an archbishop)? Does he stay at the Vatican, return to his courtry, retire, get promoted, or stay on? Thank you

Answer by Colin B. Donovan, STL on 04-17-2005:

There is no pre-ordained future for papal secretaries. Some go on to be bishops of dioceses, and that is probably what will become of Dom Stanislaw, a Polish diocese at some point. That will be entirely up to the next Pope, however.
