Some German bishops had objected strongly to the document, suggesting that it would be a setback for their plans for restructuring parish life and increasing the role of lay people. Some German dioceses have also planned radical cutbacks in the number of parishes.The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
