The Vatican Clarifies Marriage Provisions of the Apostolic Constitution for Former Anglicans
The Vatican Press Office's Daily Bulletin today published a clarification of the celibacy requirements contained in the new Apostolic Constitution. Article VI on provisions for married priests and deacons, and potentially seminarians (on a case-by-case basis), is quoted in the article. Cardinal William Levada stated, "The delay is purely technical in the
sense of ensuring consistency in canonical language and references." He said the technical work needed to ready the work for publication should be completed by the end of the first week of November.
