The 8th Annual Canon Law Conference resumes second day sessions

By Munir Bayouk/ en.abouna.org

The participants in the 8th Annual Canon Law Conference, convening at the Movenpick Resort and Spa, Dead Sea, Jordan, resumed their sessions on Tuesday, July 23.

The second day started with a morning Mass celebrated by Latin Patriarchal Vicar for Jordan Bishop Willian Shomali in the presence of Most Rev. Archbishop Pierbattista Pizzaballa, Apostolic Administrator of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem, as well as a number of bishops and priests. The Holy Mass was dedicated to the Christian families worldwide.

The Mass was followed by the third session on “Presenting Marriage from a Canonical Perspective of Engaged Couples” during which Rev. Professor Manual Arrabo Conde lectured on the legal dimensions of the sacrament of marriage, particularly for those about to receive this sacrament, through pastoral preparations as well as holding courses in which couples due to get married are to be enrolled. He indicated that lack of readiness for marriage generates several problems.

The fourth session, titled, “The Role of Pastors in Conjugal Disputes”, was presented by Dr. Laurette Wahbeh who indicated that the role of parish priests is essential and basic in the life of Christian families since the period of engagement and even after obtaining the sacrament of holy marriage. This can be attained through four points, namely the relevant messages of His Holiness Pope Francis of the cardinals in 2014; the Amoris Laetitia: Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation on love in the family; steps that help parish priests solve the problems experienced by married couples; and the stage that requires the intervention of parish priest to help married couples solve pending problems and difficulties.

This was followed by the fifth session, during which Professor Antonio Laccarino talked about “The Pastoral Investigation”. The final session for the day was by Fr. Basheer Bader who addressed “Pastoral Support and Accompaniment to Young Couples”.

The conference, held by the Ecclesiastical Court of the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem and the Pontifical Lateran University in Rome, is attended by a large number of bishops, judges, and parish priests concerned with Canon Law from Italy, the Vatican, Jordan, and various Arab countries.
