Dear Brian!!

Once again we are not paying attention to the detail of the text. The English text you quote says that its is “DESIRABLE” to set up such commissions. The Latin word is “EXPEDIT”. This has no connotation of OBLIGATION. It is merely a pious wish.

ok maybe I’m missing something here. as regards the quoted text you are indeed correct, the word ‘desirable’ is indeed used to refer to the setting up of an episcopal liturgical commission. (The fact that the episcopal liturgical commission has been set up presumably means that the Irish Bishops’ conference thought it was ‘desirable’). However, our discussion was about the obligation or otherwise on the Irish Episcopal Conference to issue guidelines was it not?
