Pope Francis Issues New Law To Prevent Child Sexual Abuse

CNN reports that the proposal must be approved by Pope Francis before it could stand.

According to CNN, this would be a big and significant change to the church’s agelong traditions where only unmarried men are ordained as priests.

The Amazon region covers areas such as some parts of Peru, Suriname, Venezuela, Peru, Ecuador, Brazil, Columbia, French Guiana.

The proposal has tagged viri probati which refers to older Catholic men who have stable families, are respected in their communities, and already deacons in their respective churches.

It should, however, be noted that the new policy is not the same thing as allowing men who are already priests to marry.
