In May 2013 Pope Francis designated De Giorgi, as Archbishop Emeritus of Palermo, his representative to officiate at the beatification of Father Pino Puglisi, killed by the mafia in 1993. As generally the Pope chooses either the Prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints or the Cardinal Secretary of State, this was seen as both unprecedented.

On 19 September 2015, Pope Francis named De Giorgi as his Special Envoy to the concluding celebration of the fifth centenary of the creation of the Diocese of Lanciano, Italy, which is now the Archdiocese of Lanciano-Ortona, held on 22 November 2015.
