De Concordia inter Codices: Harmony and Disharmony

15 November 2017, Jobe ABBASS

2PM to 3PM EST

The recording of this webinar is available here.

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.
