For Priests: New Faculties Podcast

Updated 388 days ago

This short podcast series is meant to be an aid in understanding and implementing the new priest faculties.


Father Salvatore Palazzolo and Father Tim Wezner, two canonists who were a part of the committee that worked on the project, explain the meaning of each faculty and try to anticipate questions that priests may have when reviewing thgese news faculties. Besides the priest’s own study of the faculty sheet, these episodes hope to familiarize priests with the additions and changes to the previous faculties. The hope is that the audio recordings give the convenience of listening wherever and whenever one likes and the ability to go back and listen again if needed. New episodes will be added weekly.


  • Episode One: Confession and the Anointing of the Sick
    • Episode one begins with an introduction to the topic of the faculties and why they are being updated. It then explains the distinction between “priests assigned to a parish” and “all priests,” which the pagella itself makes. Lastly, it addresses the faculties concerning Confession and the Anointing of the Sick.
