CWN Editor's Note: With the Pope’s approval, the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated and Societies of Apostolic Life has issued an Italian-language document outlining potential dispensations from Canon 588 ยง2.

The dispensations would permit a religious brother who belongs to a male religious institute of priests and brothers to become a superior in certain circumstances.
