David Maria Jaeger, OFM, told Vatican Radio the speech struck many of the Canon Law experts who heard it as a corrective to more-or-less widespread misconceptions about the way that faith “works” to make a marriage valid, and about the way that the twin objects of justice and mercy are served through the Church’s judicial organs.“In speaking afterwards with professors of Canon Law,” said Msgr. Jaeger, “I ...
