Day #323: Christus Dominus 35

In today’s reading from the Decree Concerning the Pastoral Office of Bishops in the Church, we conclude Chapter II, which constitutes the bulk of the document.

In this final section of the helpers for the bishops, we continue from yesterday’s reading with a look at the religious.  Article 35 spells out some of the details as to the relationship of religious with the local bishop as far as deference owed to him while also respecting their religious community.

Here are the footnotes:
