Apostolic Constitution “Pascite Gregem Dei,” Pope Francis reforms Book VI of the Code of Canon Law, continuing a revision begun by Benedict XVI and applying penal sanctions to more criminal offenses.
The XV ordinary Plenary Assembly of the Pontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors took place in Rome and online from April 19-22, 2021.
