Mary’s Advocates publicized the canon laws on separation and divorce.
On November 4, 2015, a letter from the President of the Pontifical Council of Legislative Texts to an unidentified bishop was posted on the Council’s website (Prot. N. 15181/2015) (Aug. 2022 note, link on vatican site not working anymore). The interpretation from Cardinal Coccopalmerio was not confirmed by pontifical authority, so it has the weight of an opinion and is not an authentic interpretation.
“Art. 155 —With regard to the universal laws of the Church, the Council (for Legislative Texts) is competent to publish authentic interpretations confirmed by pontifical authority, after consulting the dicasteries concerned in questions of major importance.” Pastor Bonus, Art. 155
