Not only inefficiency, but frustration, disorder, anger, and injustice threaten all human endeavors, no matter how pure their motives or high their ideals. That's why successful organizations always create employee handbooks and clear procedure manuals that delineate where authority lies, how conflicts are to be resolved, and, above all, how each organization's mission is (and is not) to be accomplished. Is it any wonder then that the Catholic Church—comprised not of 200 persons but 1.2 billion members in 200 countries—also governs itself by means of a handbook, which it calls the Code of Canon Law? Because handbooks and manuals concern themselves with the day-to-day inner working of organizations, they often reveal more than do news releases about the actual purposes and genuine spirit of organizations: a fact that's particularly true in the case of the Catholic Church. Indeed, if you want to know the Church for who She is, you need to be familiar with the Code of Canon Law. Unfortunately, it contains over 1,752 rules (or canons). Among them, you'll find fascinating canons that lay out the Church's official principles and procedures governing matters as various as abbots and annulments, scandals and Sacraments, monks and missions, bishops and books, priests and popes, synods and sacraments, homeschoolers, hostile witnesses, baptisms, burials, parishes, penance, confessions, Councils, impotence, imprimaturs, and, even marriages to the person who murdered your spouse! Thankfully, Vatican expert and veteran author Fr. Laurence Spiteri has in the pages of Canon Law Explained relieved you of the need to read all 1,752 of them (fascinating or not). Here he acquaints you with the fundamental canons by which the Church seeks to bring about, as it declares in the very last canon, the purpose all of them serve: "The salvation of souls, which must always be the supreme law in the Church." Fr. Spiteri's brief, but lucid explanations of the origins and meaning of the canons make sense of much that puzzles non-Catholics about our Church and that sometimes frustrates even us Catholics. As he relates the Church's laws and procedures directly to Christ's command "to go forth and teach all nations"—and to the role those laws and procedures play in your salvation and mine—Fr. Spiteri transforms what seem to be dry-as-dust rules into the sweet waters of salvation. If you want to know the Church for who She is—and to love Her more—Canon Law Explained is the book for you.

The 1983 revised Code of Canon Law is now a dozen years old. Since then hundreds of new laws and more than 25 authentic interpretations of laws have been promulgated, not only adding new legislation, but in some cases changing canons of the code and norms of the liturgical books. Also during this period many new documents have appeared from the Holy See and the conference of bishops.Some of the more important recent publications that affect the pastoral ministry are: the 1990 Code of Canons of the Eastern Churches; the 1993 Directory for Ecumenism; the 1988 Directory for Sunday Celebrations in the Absence of a Priest; a new marriage ritual (1991) and rites for ordination (1990) which have not yet appeared in English; and new American editions of the RCIA, Order of Christian Funerals, and Book of Blessings.This completely revised and updated edition incorporates changes in law, new laws and commentaries promulgated since 1983 and features new indexes, a 14-page glossary of canon law terms, an outline of the 1988 reforms of the Roman Curia, a new chapter on holy orders and clergy, new sections on the faithful, rights and obligations, sacramentals, Communion services outside Mass, and much more.

From time to time, all Catholics have them: nagging questions about church life, often prompted by some personal encounter or challenging situation: Is a layperson allowed to preach a homily? Is a pastor required to report to someone regarding parish finances, or is he on his own? It seems like the parish council is running your parish. Does it have the authority to do so? Must a child be baptized in a church, or may the baptism take place at home? Surprised by Canon Law tackles these and many other questions, all of which have been formally addressed by the Roman Catholic Church’s Code of Canon Law. The Code—the internal legal system that governs the church’s day-to-day workings—deals with far-flung concerns of interest to the person-in-the-pew. This practical guide to the Code provides answers to a range of questions, from “Can the pope resign?” to the more sensitive query “Do you have the right to tell your bishop what the diocese needs?” In straightforward language the authors discuss the nuts-and-bolts of church life, making canon law accessible to the everyday Catholic. A Servant Book.

In four periods: From the foundation of the Church to the "Decretum Gratiani," from the Gregorian Reform to the Council of Trent, from Trent to the "Codex Iuris Canonici," and from its promulgation in 1917 to the new Codex of 1983, Van de Wiel offers a clear description of the general concepts and constitutive sources of Canon Law. His work is a contribution to the history of canon law and will be of great service both to students and jurists. Constant Van de Wiel is currently professor of Canon Law at the Catholic University of Leuven, Louvain (Belgium), Chancellor and Keeper of the Archives of the Archdiocese of Mechlin-Brussels. He published on the subject in the Louvain Journal of Theological and Canonical Studies: "Ephemerides Theologicae Lovanienses," and in several specialized journals.

"James Coriden offers a vision of canon law in the Catholic Church - seeing it not as an instrument of control but as a guide and guarantee of freedom for believers. In the process he emphatically joins the ongoing debate about the role of church law, a debate that he believes "will have profound implications for the long term," possibly reshaping the law and indeed "the very face of the church." While his message is addressed primarily to professional canonists, it will resonate among all Catholics who care about the way their church functions." "The view of canon law that unfolds in these pages is that of a ministry that upholds the freedom of believers and the good order of the community. This is based on the assumption that "church" is first of all a local community rather than a global structure. The test of effective law depends upon its service to the lived experience of its members in their own cultural, economic and social situations." "The concluding section of this book sets forth "An Urgent Agenda for the Future of the Ministry," particularly in the way church law is revised and amended."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

"The Right of Catholic in the Church is a basic reference for those who want to know about or pursue their rights as Catholics. It is designed primarily to promote constructive involvement and equality among the members of the church, not to encourage litigious attitudes. The author focuses on the lay members of the Roman Catholic Church because the laity seems most in need of knowledge about their rights However, the rights outlined in this excellent and most accessible book apply equally to all Catholics, including deacons, priests, bishops, and members of religious communities."--BOOK JACKET.

"This volume," says James Coriden in his introduction, "... allows the reader to reach an accurate understanding of the authentic nature and function of parishes within the Catholic tradition." It describes the origins of parishes and their historical evolution, offers a theology of parish as a local church, links parishes to the church's social teaching and provides a comprehensive overview of their function in Roman Catholic law and their relationship to American civil law." "In clear, nontechnical language, the volume outlines the canonical status of Catholics as parishioners - as well as their rights, duties and forms of assembly and the relationship of parishes to other ecclesial and civil bodies. Ministerial students, clerical and lay ministers, members of parish councils and laypersons generally will find this book an indispensable handbook for living and working within parish communities. Christians of other denominations will make fruitful connections between their own congregational life and Roman Catholic experience."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
