Abstract: Šiame straipsnyje toliau tęsiama tema apie vyskupų konferencijas. Ši institucija mūsų krašto žmogui, aišku, daugiausia dvasininkams ir vienuoliams, yra pasiekiama ir suprantama per įvairaus pobūdžio nutarimus, dekretus, laiškus, paraginimus ir t. t. Niekam nekyla klausimų dėl pastarųjų turinio, pobūdžio, kompetencijos. Kad visa tai, ką šiandien turime, yra ne vienerių metų diskusijos, dar nepasibaigusios, rezultatas, žinoma ne visiems. Straipsnio tikslas – pažvelgti į šių institucijų kilmę ir prigimtį, trumpai tariant, į normatyvinės galios prigimtį, apibrėžti jos kompleksiškumą ir raidą

The main and only reason was: Episcopal Conferences were acknowledged as institutions, helping the bishops to fulfill their pastoral mission. In other words, these are the questions, concerning the nature of the Conference itself, because gaining the normative power, they become not additional, but structural power. Before formation of the final text of Christus Dominusch. 38, 4 variants were offered, but the leading idea was how to diminish, to limit the importance of the decisions of Episcopal Conferences, making them only morally obligatory. Such decisions helped to protect a diocese bishop with his missio canonicain a diocese; everything intro-duced “as new” should serve as a means to the bishop’s pastoral office. A diocese bishop was understood as individual personality with his special power which should be preserved, otherwise it would restrict bishops’ freedom, and the Conferences would become “a new centralization”, “destruction of Church structure” or the distortion of hierarchic order.
