  1. Oh, RNS … I know deadline pressure is tough, but please be more careful with your copy editing. It’s “uncharted,” not “unchartered” waters for the Vatican, and it’s “canon law” not “cannon law” for church rules. The differences in meaning of the errors are significant in this context. We rely on you to be precise about religion; please don’t let us down. Thanks!
