De Concordia inter Codices: Harmony and Disharmony

15 November 2017, Jobe ABBASS

In Pope Francis' recent motu proprio, De Concordia inter Codices, he seeks to achieve a harmony between the Latin and Eastern Codes regarding a number of pastoral norms. This webinar will look at the Latin norms affected and look at whether or not a certain disharmony remains between the two Codes of the Church as a result of the Pope's motu proprio.
