From Legalism to Mercy?

“The frame of reference now is no longer the Code of Canon Law. The frame of reference is now going to be, ‘What does the Gospel really say here?'” — That’s one response from a Q&A conducted by David Gibson with Cardinal Donald W. Wuerl of Washington DC. The interview, published by the Religion News Service, finds Wuerl emphasizing mercy and pastoral responses as the mode of operation for the future, in accordance with what Pope Francis has requested. You can read the full interview in Gibson’s blog.
