Quote:Rome, Italy, Sep 9, 2017 / 09:17 am (CNA/EWTN News).- The Vatican announced Saturday that Cardinal Velasio De Paolis, C.S., prefect emeritus of the Prefecture for the Economic Affairs of the Holy See and a distinguished professor and scholar of canon law, has died in Rome.
Most recently, in 2014, he was a contributor to the book, “Remaining in the Truth of Christ: Marriage and Communion in the Catholic Church.”
Edited by Fr. Robert Dodaro, O.S.A., it was written in response to Cardinal Walter Kasper's suggestion that the Church allow those who are divorced and civilly remarried without an annulment to receive the Eucharist.
Besides Cardinal De Paolis, among the nine contributors to the book were Cardinals Walter Brandmuller, Raymond Burke, Gerhard Muller and Carlo Caffarra, who passed away Sept. 6 at the age of 79.
