The ICCRS is making efforts to collect and make accessible as resource official documents on the CCR. Our aim is to make available online Popes' messages, Bishops' statements, pastoral guidelines from the Magisterium and important documents issued by NSCs. This page is currently being developed, so we ask you to pray with us for this project and if you have a document of this type, please contact us through email@example.com. Click on the title to download the file. Notice that they are available in their original language.
