CWN Editor's Note: Speaking on January 28 to officers of the Roman Rota, Pope Francis said that the Church should provide more careful preparation and continuing support for married couples. He stressed that “pastoral action cannot be limited to the completion of paperwork.” The Pope told the Roman Rota, the Vatican tribunal that handles marriage cases, that the witness offered by faithful married couples is “a precious pastoral help to the Church.”
