Chaldean patriarch tightens control over Church properties

CWN –
The head of the Chaldean Catholic Church, an Eastern Catholic church in full communion with the Holy See, has forbidden the sale of Church properties without permission from “the high ecclesiastical authorities,” the Fides news agency reported.

Fides linked Patriarch Louis Raphaël I Sako’s decision to Pope Benedict XVI’s 2012 post-synodal apostolic exhortation Ecclesia in Medio Oriente, which stated that “the alienation of Church goods should adhere strictly to the relevant canonical norms and current papal legislation” (no. 44).
