“Recent Pontifical Magisterium”…hummm

February 28, 2008

VATICAN CITY, JAN. 22, 2008 (Zenit.org).- The Code of Canon Law is similar to a painting that depicts the identity and mission of each of the faithful within the Church, said a Vatican official.

Archbishop Francesco Coccopalmerio, president of the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts, affirmed this today in a press conference ahead of a congress commemorating the 25th anniversary of the 1983 code. Archbishop Coccopalmerio was joined by the secretary of the council, Monsignor Juan Arrieta.

The congress will run Thursday through Friday and will be dedicated to “Canon Law in the Life of the Church: Research and Perspectives in the Context of Recent Pontifical Magisterium.”
