UPDATE: The Vatican has released official English translations of the motu proprios, available here.
The Board of Governors of The Canon Law Society of America is pleased to present English-language translations of Mitis Iudex Dominus Iesus and Mitis et misericors Iesus given to the Church by Pope Francis on the 8th of September. A debt of gratitude is owed to Meg Romano-Hogan, Rev. Bruce Miller, Msgr. John Renken and Msgr. Girard M. Sherba for their collaboration on Mitis Iudex Dominus Iesus, and to Chorbishop John D. Faris, and Rev. W. Becket Soule, O.P., for their work on Mitis et misericors Iesus. It is hoped these unofficial translations will assist all who exercise the Church’s juridic ministry in studying and implementing the new norms.
