Today in the Decree Concerning the Pastoral Office of Bishops in the Church, we continue our look at diocesan bishops.
We pick up on the theme of teaching introduced yesterday in article 12. Article 13 speaks of the need for bishops to both maintain the doctrine of the Church and also to present that doctrine in ways that are more understandable to the people of the present age. Article 14 focuses on the necessity of good catechesis and formation of catechists.
