  Canonical observations
Therefore, the doctrinal pronouncements or judgements of this dicastery in fulfilling its task are made "in the name and by the authority of the Roman Pontiff" and are thus the expression of a participation in his ordinary Magisterium, although to varying degrees, particularly when they are expressly approved by the Supreme Pontiff.
This particular feature, unique among the dicasteries of the Roman Curia, puts the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in a particular relationship with all dicasteries in so far as the latter touch on questions of faith.
The relator pro auctore is appointed by the dicastery, since we are still at the exploratory phase of the procedure; the Congregation is only trying to form a more precise idea of the author's thought, without having decided, for the moment, whether to take further action.

  Dicasteries   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Dicasteries (from Greek: δικαστ, judge/juror) are the central offices of the Roman Curia in which the stewardship of the Roman Catholic Church is entrusted.
Examples of dicasteries are the Secretariat of State, Congregations, Tribunals, Councils and Offices, like the Apostolic Camera, the Administration of the Patrimony of the Apostolic See, and the Prefecture for the Economic Affairs of the Holy See.
A dicastery is presided over by either a prefect, a president, or a secretary who is personally appointed by the Pope.

  Secretary of State - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In the Foreign Office they are known, for diplomatic reasons, as Ministers of State.
The Cardinal Secretary of State presides over the Secretariat of State, which is the most important dicastery of the Roman Curia, as it organizes, makes appointments to, and directs the activities of the other dicasteries.
During a sede vacante, the former Secretary of State (the appointment expires when the pope dies or resigns) assumes some of the functions of the head of state as a part of a temporary commission.

 PASTOR BONUS
In addition to this, most of the heads of the individual dicasteries have the character and grace of the episcopate, pertaining to the one College of Bishops, and so are inspired by the same solicitude for the whole Church as are all bishops in hierarchical communion with their head, the bishop of Rome.
All the cardinals in charge of dicasteries, or their representatives, when specific questions are to be addressed, meet periodically in order to brief one another on the more important matters and provide mutual assistance in finding solutions, thus providing unity of thought and action in the Roman Curia.
Unless they have a different structure in virtue of their specific nature or some special law, the dicasteries are composed of the cardinal prefect or the presiding archbishop, a body of cardinals and of some bishops, assisted by a secretary, consultors, senior administrators, and a suitable number of officials.

 Pastor Bonus - John Paul II - Apostolic Constitution (June 28, 1988)
The dicasteries study the major problems of the present age, so that the Church’s pastoral action may be more effectively promoted and suitably coordinated, with due regard to relations with the particular Churches.
Questions brought before the dicasteries are to be diligently examined and, without delay, an answer or, at least, a written acknowledgement of receipt, insofar as this is necessary, should be sent.
It is to be examined with all diligence by the competent dicasteries, and their remarks are to be shared with a special committee convened for this purpose so that a brief synthesis of these may be drawn up and be readily at hand in the meetings.

 Catholic World News (CWN)
The Secretariat of State is the prime office of the Holy See, and of all the dicasteries within the Vatican, it works most closely with the Pope.
Indeed it is the "super dicastery" because while the Pope is the head of state, the Secretary of State is the prime minister.
Moreover, the Secretary of State has considerable influence over other Vatican offices because the prefect of a Congregation does not choose his secretary or undersecretary; they are chosen for him, and they are chosen by the Secretary of State.

 The April 7 meeting of the Pope with the heads of dicasteries
As the meeting of February 13, the meeting of April 7 could include only a convergence of opinions among the dicasteries, under the guidance of the Pope (considering the final opinions issued by the dicasteries involved in the process, as determined in the February meeting), before a more definitive move is decided by His Holiness.
And, so it's said, the long-anticipated changes in the dicasteries could be publicly announced shortly thereafter.

 The Cardinals of the Holy Roman Church - The Roman Curia
This congregation results of the unification of two dicasteries originally autonomous: the Congregation for Divine Worship, established by Paul VI with the motu propio Sacra Ritum Congregatio, on May 8, 1969 and the Congregation for the Discipline of the Sacraments instituted by St. Pius X with the apostolic constitution Sapienti Consilio, on June 29, 1908.
On May 8, 1969, the dicastery was divided into two different congregations by Pope Paul VI with the apostolic constitution Sacra Ritum Congregatio: the S.C. for Divine Worship and the S. for the Causes of the Saints.
The dicastery was known as Congregation of the Council until August 15, 1967, when Pope Paul VI renamed it the Congregation for the Clergy and redefined its competency through the apostolic constitution Regimini Ecclesiae Universae.

 Vatikanet: Ninth General Congregation
Called to be the promoter of inculturation of faith, the bishop must encourage the theologians who, with their reflections and research, elaborate an authentic African theology.
As for the remainder, one hopes that the various offices of the Roman dicasteries manifest greater attention to the distribution of subsidies, since we often lack the material means for creating the basic infrastructures for the deeper evangelization of the African individual.
We hope that relations between the apostolic nunciatures and the Roman dicasteries and the diocesan bishops may be characterized by a more fraternal collaboration and by a true pastoral solicitude, maintaining the respect of competencies.

In a statement published today by Joaqu?n Navarro Valls, director of the Vatican press office, the new Pope confirmed until further notice the cardinals and archbishops heading the dicasteries of the Roman Curia and the president of the Pontifical Commission for Vatican City State, Cardinal Edmund Szoka.
Benedict XVI confirmed as well the secretaries of the Roman Curia's dicasteries for the five-year period under way.
"The secretaries see to the ordinary operations of the dicasteries, taking care of the ordinary business only; they need to be confirmed in office by the Supreme Pontiff within three months of his election," it adds.

 Seattle Catholic - Conservative and Traditional Catholicism Compared
The traditionalist is not interested in doing anything in the sense that he does not want to effect change for the good, but he wants to be Catholic in all of his being and acting.
The traditionalist knows full well that the Rome of the dicasteries in 2003 is distinct from the ideal Rome, and that authority in the church is a mystical Venn diagram where the two sometimes meet and sometimes do not.
The traditionalist has the hope to be authentic, which is what he seeks: a way of living that aspires to the fullness of appreciation of the Catholic Thing which is beyond temporal and local considerations, religion made a way of life.

 Some Specific Causes of Priests’ Anger, taken from the NCEA Seminary Journal, Winter 2004, by Louis Cameli
Priests are angry at the Roman dicasteries that make pronouncements and give directions for moral statements, liturgical changes, and the role of the laity but do so in a way that often seems detached from the pastoral realities that priests must daily grapple with.
Or, alternately, priests are angry that these same dicasteries and local ordinaries are remiss in enforcing church law and allowing non-compliance to flourish.
Priests are angry with “downtown” for the same reasons they are angry at the dicasteries, but with the added hitch that downtown is closer and, therefore, more intrusive with its bureaucratic fuss than Rome.

 The World Seen From Rome
As you know, it was John Paul II who called me to preside over the Secretariat for Nonbelievers in June 1980, with the intention of studying the creation of the Pontifical Council for Culture, which took place in 1982, and of which he also appointed me president.
From 1982 to 1993, I was president of the two dicasteries, which, however, kept their respective autonomy, exactly as is now the case.
What is clear is that there will have to be a greater collaboration between the two dicasteries which the Pope has requested me to preside over "for the time being."

 Cardinals in the Catholic Church | Catholic-Pages.com
Because of their special devotion and holiness, they are called to assist the Holy Father in the governance of the Church.
Most Cardinals are either Archbishops of the largest dioceses in their countries or regions, or the heads of the dicasteries of the Roman Curia (the Pope's Ministers of State, if you like).
Of course, the singular role that the Cardinals play is that of electing a new Pontiff when the See of Peter is vacant (see Electing a Pope).

At one level, the difference between red and blue dicasteries pivots on areas of responsibility.
Similarly, dicasteries engaged with the Islamic world, such as Inter-religious Dialogue, have a strong concern for Islamic sentiment.
If the focus is just on the cardinals and other senior officials who head dicasteries, the balance would probably shift slightly in favor of Bush.

Among the various dicasteries of the Roman Curia, the Congregation for the Oriental Churches has a particularly delicate task because of its institutional competence and the present moment in history.
In their ecumenical commitment, by virtue of their theological and cultural closeness to the Orthodox Churches, they are called to proceed with courage and determination, even if there is still a memory of past wounds and it is at times difficult to fulfill this mandate in the present circumstances.
