Statement of Bishop Dennis Sullivan Regarding Pope Francis’ Motu Proprio Mitis Iudex Dominus Iesus
On the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Pope Francis promulgated a letter entitled The Lord Jesus, Gentle Judge, which revised the canonical procedures for Catholics seeking a declaration of nullity (annulment) for a marriage.
The Holy Father made it clear that the Church’s law and pastoral life are ordered to the practice of charity and mercy and ultimately the salvation of souls. In fact, Pope Francis made it clear that he is “not promoting the nullity of marriage, but the quickness of the processes, as well as a correct simplicity” of annulment procedures. These changes have resulted from the world-wide consultation for last year’s Extraordinary Synod and the recommendations of a commission of canonists impaneled by the Holy Father to review annulment procedures and the Church’s law.
In the coming months new procedures and policies will be developed. I have asked the Diocesan Tribunal to prepare presentations for priests, deacons and the faithful before the beginning of December. In this way the Diocese of Camden will be ready on December 8th to implement the changes made by the Motu Proprio. On that day, we, together with the Church throughout the world, will joyfully commence the Jubilee of Mercy.

At the heart of the documentary, DUKALE'S DREAM, is Hugh Jackman and his wife Deborra-lee Furness' journey to better understand how to make an impact on extreme poverty. During a trip to Ethiopia –the birthplace of coffee– they learned about the effectiveness of community development, fair trade, and education in reducing global poverty. DUKALE'S DREAM seeks to spark a conversation about the ways in which we can all play a part in tackling these important issues. You will also learn about empowerment principles that support dignified and sustainable opportunities for helping those in greatest need. Dream with Dukale and make the world a better place one cup of coffee at a time.

Are you, or have you at some point thought about becoming Catholic? Maybe you have tagged along with someone going to Sunday Mass and have had a "this is where I belong" feeling while there. If so, why not ask the questions and get the answers to help you decide. In the RCIA program this is called the Inquiry Phase of discernment and is taking place now. If you are interested, we would love to talk with you. For more information please contact Barbara Long at 856-810-0881.
