Bishops must have awareness of the needs of the church worldwide. The rights of the faithful are rarely mentioned in discussions of distribution of clergy. Eastern code is very similar but there is a bit on courtesy between bishops. Clerical mobility and stability are changing. The people of God have a right to ministry. The concepts of discipline of the 1917 are being raised up because of the sex abuse problem. The policies on incardination are geared not to facilitating the move, but to prohibiting the move. Married clergy - how would this effect incardination. New ecclesial movements may draw clergy across diocesan lines. Is there a future for the diocesan structure (canon 369). How does this effect the development of lay ministries? John Paul II said: Seek other solutions to the shortage.  Deacons are under the incardination system. But especially married deacons with other employment may have to choose between his bonds: employer, family, church.

All dicasteries can be lead by qualified lay persons, Cardinals or clerics are no longer required. And the heads of all dicasteries are to meet regularly with the pope, rather than only the heads of Doctrine and Bishops as previously.

 **Canon 265 All incardinated** Every cleric incardinated. Transient clerics disallowed. Clergy must be examined - will they be useful to the pastoral care of the faithful.
