CWN Editor's Note: Carmelite Archbishop Filippo Iannone, 64, discussed the work of the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts, of which he was been president since 2018.

“The major part of our work is dedicated to responding to questions regarding concrete issues that we receive from diocesan bishops, from the staff of ecclesiastical tribunals, from religious superiors,” he said. “In fact, the dicastery receives precise requests regarding not so much, or not directly, the authentic interpretation of canon law, but its application in individual cases that come to light in daily life.”
