.- Today, the mixed commission for the examination of norms in the cases of priestly sexual abuse against minors began work again today. On Saturday, Holy See Press Office Director Joaquin Navarro-Valls noted in a declaration that the commission would meet in the Vatican today and tomorrow and continued with the following comments:
"The commission is made up of delegates from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and representatives from dicasteries of the Roman Curia.
"The aim of the commission is to study the application of norms, approved on December 8, 2002, 'ad experimentum' for two years, and to evaluate guidelines for the future in the context of the universal law of the Church."
The group is meeting again this week to deal with remaining issues of the Dallas Charter which are said to still be at odds with Canon Law.
