Holy See to issue document on dignity of marriage and annulments

.- The Vatican announced this week the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts will release a new document entitled “Dignitas connubii” on the dignity of marriage and the question of annulments on Tuesday, February 8.

The document, prepared by the Pontifical Council in collaboration with other Vatican dicasteries, will be presented at a press conference that will be attended by Cardinal Julian Herranz, President of the Council, Archbishop Angelo Amato, Secretary of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Archbishop Domenico Sorrentino, Secretary of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, Bishop Valasio de Paolis, the secretary of the tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura; and Msgr. Mgr Antoni Stankiewicz, the dean of the tribunal of the Roman Rota.

The document is a result of the Holy See’s concern for the apparent laxity of some Church tribunals in granting annulments and will be published in two bilingual versions: Latin/Italian and Latin/English.
