Pope institutes Italian working group for Motu proprio implementation

(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis has has established a working group coordinated by the Secretary General of the Italian Bishops’ Conference – the CEI – regarding the implementation in the country of the Holy Father’s Apostolic Letter Motu proprio, Mitis Iudex Dominus Iesus, which deals with the adjudication of cases of marital nullity.

Italy faces particular challenges in implementing the Pope’s changes, due to the number of dioceses in Italy and the inter-diocesan structure of regional and provincial tribunals in place – challenges the CEI addressed in a recent plenary meeting.

The working table is set up to encourage and, in fact, define the “main interpretation and application issues of common interest.”
