CWN Editor's Note: Pope Francis has established two new eparchies (the equivalent of dioceses) for the Syro-Malabar Catholic Church in India, and extended the boundaries of two existing eparchies. The new eparchies cover territories in which the Roman and/or Syro-Malankara rites are already established. The Pope observed that in India, “overlapping jurisdictions should no longer be problematic.”
