Inter-Ecclesial Relations Between Eastern and Latin Churches: A Canonical-Pastoral Handbook by Dimitri Salachas and Krzysztof Nitkiewicz and translated into English by George Dmitry Gallaro is now available.
This handbook addresses the needs of the Catholic faithful who find themselves under the care of clergy of a Church sui iuris different from their own. These situations pose significant challenges to pastoral ministers, especially in light of Vatican II’s decree Orientalium Ecclesiarum and the Eastern and Latin Codes. More and more, appropriate issues are being raised regarding the administration and reception of the sacraments. The subject of inter-ecclesial and inter-ritual disciplinary norms is not only timely but also relevant. A better mutual understanding of the various Churches will enrich ritual patrimony and also secure the valid and licit reception of the sacramental mysteries.
