Centuries-old holy matrimony just got updated


Three recent changes to the Catholic marriage prerequisites were silently enacted by Motu Proprio. When someone tries to change civil marriage prerequisites enthusiasts of this form of marriage insist that a referendum is required.

Art. 3. Textus can. 1086, § 1 Codicis Iuris Canonici sic immutatur: "Matrimonium inter duas personas, quarum altera sit baptizata in Ecclesia catholica vel in eandem recepta, et altera non baptizata, invalidum est".

Art. 4. Textus canonis 1117 Codicis Iuris Canonici sic immutatur: "Statuta superius forma servanda est, si saltem alterutra pars matrimonium contrahentium in Ecclesia catholica baptizata vel in eandem recepta sit, salvis praescriptis can. 1127, § 2".

Art. 5. Textus canonis 1124 Codicis Iuris Canonici sic immutatur: "Matrimonium inter duas personas baptizatas, quarum altera sit in Ecclesia catholica baptizata vel in eandem post baptismum recepta, altera vero Ecclesiae vel communitati ecclesiali plenam communionem cum Ecclesia catholica non habenti adscripta, sine expressa auctoritatis competentis licentia prohibitum est".

Random Thoughts...

On the rare occasions of my life I've been called a son of a bitch I never really took offense. The notion that something was being implied about my mother's condition and which would then say something about my character seemed both circuitous and so far removed from reality as to sound simply silly.
