Here is one reply from Rome to a Congregations request for one of its members:

" requests for dispensation for priests not yet 40 may only be given active consideration if they go beyond the ordinary motives for defection and when grave scandal is present, such as when defects had already emerged before ordination but were not taken into serious consideration by those entrusted with formation. An attentive study of this case has not revealed the presence of such grounds .Without these the case will not be given further consideration until the petitioner has reached 40 years of age "
