Canon 2 For the most part the Code does not determine the rites to be observed in the celebration of liturgical actions. Accordingly, liturgical laws, which have been in effect, hitherto retain their force, except those, which may be contrary to the Canons of the Code. Canon 3 The Canons of the Code do not abrogate, nor do they derogate from, agreements entered into by the Apostolic See with nations or other civil entities.
For this reason, these agreements continue in force as hitherto, notwithstanding any contrary provisions of this Code. Canon 4 Acquired rights, and likewise privileges hitherto granted by the Apostolic See to either physical or juridical persons, which are still in use and have not been revoked, remain intact, unless they are expressly revoked by the Canons of this Code.
Other contrary customs are also to be considered suppressed, unless the Code expressly provides otherwise, or unless they are centennial or immemorial: these latter may be tolerated if the Ordinary judges that, in the circumstances of place and person, they cannot be removed.
They come into force only on the expiry of three months from the date appearing on the particular issue of the 'Acta', unless because of the nature of the case they bind at once, or unless a shorter or a longer interval has been specifically and expressly prescribed m the law itself. Canon 9 Laws concern matters of the future, not those of the past, unless provision is made in them for the latter by name. Canon 10 Only those laws are to be considered invalidating or incapacitating which expressly prescribe that an act is null or that a person is incapable.
Canon 1 1 Merely ecclesiastical laws bind those who were baptized in the Catholic Church or received into it, and who have a sufficient use of reason and, unless the law expressly provides otherwise, who have completed their seventh year of age. Canon 14 Laws, even invalidating and incapacitating ones, do not oblige when there is a doubt of law.
When there is a doubt of fact, however Ordinaries can dispense from them provided, if there is question of a reserved dispensation, it is one which the authority to whom it is reserved Is accustomed to grant. It is presumed about a fact concerning another which is not notorious, until the contrary is proved.
If it simply declares the sense of words which are certain in themselves, it has retroactive force. If it restricts or extends the law or resolves a doubt, it is not retroactive. It binds only those persons and affects only those matters for which it was given.
Canon 17 Ecclesiastical laws are to be understood according to the proper meaning of the words considered in their text and context. If the meaning remains doubtful or obscure, there must be recourse to parallel places, if there be any, to the purpose and circumstances of the law, and to the mind of the legislator.
Canon 18 Laws which prescribe a penalty, or restrict the free exercise of rights, or contain an exception to the law, are to be interpreted strictly. Canon 19 If on a particular matter there is not an express provision of either universal or particular law, nor a custom, then, provided it is not a penal matter, the question is to be decided by taking into account laws enacted in similar matters, the general principles of law observed with canonical equity, the jurisprudence and practice of the Roman Curia, and the common and constant opinion of learned authors.
Canon 20 A later law abrogates or derogates from an earlier law, if it expressly so states, or if it is directly contrary to that law, or if it integrally reorders the whole subject matter of the earlier law. A universal law, however, does not derogate from a particular or from a special law, unless the law expressly provides otherwise. Canon 21 In doubt, the revocation of a previous law is not presumed; rather, later laws are to be related to earlier ones and, as far as possible, harmonized with them.
Canon 22 When the law of the Church remits some issue to the civil law, the latter is to be observed with the same effects in Canon law, insofar as it is not contrary to divine law, and provided it is not othenwise stipulated in Canon law. Title II: Custom Canon 23 A custom introduced by a community of the faithful has the force of law only if it has been approved by the legislator, in accordance with the following Canons.
Canon 25 No custom acquires the force of law unless it has been observed, with the intention of introducing a law, by a community capable at least of receiving a law. Canon 26 Unless it has been specifically approved by the competent legislator, a custom which is contrary to the Canon law currently in force, or is apart from the Canon law, acquires the force of law only when it has been lawfully observed for a period of thirty continuous and complete years.
Only a centennial or immemorial custom can prevail over a canonical law which carries a clause forbidding future customs. Canon 27 Custom is the best interpreter of laws. Canon 28 Without prejudice to the provisions of Canon 5, a custom, whether contrary to or apart from the law, is revoked by a contrary custom or law.
But unless the law makes express mention of them, it does not revoke centennial or immemorial customs, nor does a universal law revoke particular customs. Title III: General Decrees And Instructions Canon 29 General decrees, by which a competent legislator makes common provisions for a community capable of receiving a law, are true laws and are regulated by the provisions of the Canons on laws.
Canon 30 A general decree, as in Canon 29, cannot be made by one who has only executive power, unless in particular cases this has been expressly authorized by the competent legislator in accordance with the law, and provided the conditions prescribed in the act of authorization are observed. Canon 32 General executory decrees which define the manner of application or urge the observance of laws, bind those who are bound by the laws.
They do not cease on the expiry of the authority of the person who issued them, unless the contrary is expressly provided. Those who have executive power may, within the limits of their competence, lawfully publish such instructions. In doubt, a strict interpretation is to be given to those administrative acts which concern litigation or threaten or inflict penalties, or restrict the rights of persons, or harm the acquired rights of others, or run counter to a law in favor of private persons; all other administrative acts are to be widely interpreted.
Canon 37 An administrative act which concerns the external forum is to be effected in writing; likewise, if it requires an executor, the act of execution is to be in writing. Canon 38 An administrative act, even if there is question of a rescript given Motu proprio, has no effect in so far as it harms the acquired right of another, or is contrary to a law or approved custom, unless the competent authority has expressly added a derogatory clause.
Canon 39 Conditions attached to an administrative act are considered to concern validity only when they are expressed by the particles 'if, 'unless', 'provided that'. Canon 40 The executor of any administrative act cannot validly carry out this office before receiving the relevant document and establishing its authenticity and integrity, unless prior notice of this document has been conveyed to the executor on the authority of the person who issued the administrative act.
Canon 41 The executor of an administrative act to whom the task of execution only is entrusted, cannot refuse to execute it, unless it is quite clear that the act itself is null, or that it cannot for some other grave reason be sustained, or that the conditions attached to the administrative act itself have not been fulfilled.
If, however, the execution of the administrative act would appear to be inopportune, by reason of the circumstances of person or place, the executor is to desist from the execution, and immediately inform the person who issued the act. Canon 42 The executor of an administrative act must proceed in accordance with the mandate. If, however, the executor has not fulfilled essential conditions attached to the document, or has not observed the substantial form of procedure, the execution is invalid.
Canon 43 The executor of an administrative act may in his prudent judgment substitute another for himself, unless substitution has been forbidden, or he has been deliberately chosen as the only person to be executor, or a specific person has been designated as substitute; however, in these cases the executor may commit the preparatory acts to another.
Canon 44 An administrative act can also be executed by the executor's successor in office, unless the first had been chosen deliberately as the only person to be executor. Canon 45 If there has been any error in the execution of an administrative act, the executor may execute it again.
Canon 46 An administrative act does not cease on the expiry of the authority of the person issuing it, unless the law expressly provides otherwise.
Canon 47 The revocation of an administrative act by another administrative act of the competent authority takes effect only from the moment at which the person to whom it was issued is lawfully notified. Canon 49 A singular precept is a decree by which an obligation is directly and lawfully imposed on a specific person or persons to do or to omit something, especially in order to urge the observance of a law.
Canon 50 Before issuing a singular decree, the person in authority is to seek the necessary information and proof and, as far as possible, is to consult those whose rights could be harmed. Canon 51 A decree is to be issued in writing. When it is a decision, it should express, at least in summary form, the reasons for the decision. Canon 52 A singular decree has effect in respect only of those matters it determines and of those persons to whom it was issued; it obliges such persons everywhere, unless it is otherwise clear.
Canon 53 If decrees are contrary one to another, where specific matters are expressed, the specific prevails over the general; if both are equally specific or equally general, the one later in time abrogates the earlier insofar as it is contrary to it.
Canon 55 Without prejudice to Canon. Canon 56 A decree is deemed to have been made known if the person to whom it is directed has been duly summoned to receive or to hear the decree, and without a just reason has not appeared or has refused to sign. Canon 60 Any rescript can be obtained by ail who are not expressly prohibited.
Canon 61 Unless it is otherwise established, a rescript can be obtained for another, even without that person's consent, and it is valid before its acceptance, without prejudice to contrary clauses. Canon 62 A rescript in which there is no executor, has effect from the moment the document was issued; the others have effect from the moment of execution.
Canon 64 Without prejudice to the right of the Penitentiary for the internal forum, a favor refused by any department of the Roman Curia cannot validly be granted by another department of the same Curia, or by any other competent authority below the Roman Pontiff, without the approval of the department which was first approached.
When the refusal is mentioned, the Ordinary is not to grant the favor unless he has learned from the former Ordinary the reasons for the refusal. A favor refused by the diocesan Bishop cannot, without the Bishop's consent, validly be obtained from his Vicar general or Episcopal Vicar, even though mention is made of the refusal.
Canon 66 A rescript is not rendered invalid because of an error in the name of the person to whom it is given or by whom it is issued, or of the place in which such person resides, or of the matter concerned, provided that in the judgment of the Ordinary there is no doubt about the person or the matter in question.
Canon 68 A rescript of the Apostolic See in which there is no executor must be presented to the Ordinary of the person who obtains it only when this is prescribed in the rescript, or when there is question of public affairs, or when it is necessary to have the conditions verified. Canon 69 A rescript for whose presentation no time is determined, may be submitted to the executor at any time, provided there is no fraud or deceit.
Canon 70 If in a rescript the very granting of the favor is entrusted to the executor, it is a matter for the executor's prudent judgment and conscience to grant or to refuse the favor. Canon 71 No one is obliged to use a rescript granted in his or her favor only, unless bound by a canonical obligation from another source to do so. Canon 72 Rescripts granted by the Apostolic See which have expired, can for a just reason be extended by the diocesan Bishop, but once only and not beyond three months.
Canon 73 No rescripts are revoked by a contrary law, unless it is otherwise provided in the law itself. Canon 74 Although one who has been granted a favor orally may use it in the internal forum, that person is obliged to prove the favor for the external forum whenever this is lawfully requested.
Canon 75 If a rescript contains a privilege or a dispensation, the provision of the following Canons are also to be observed. The interpretation must, however, always be such that the beneficiaries of the privilege do in fact receive some favor.
Canon 79 Without prejudice to Canon 46, a privilege ceases by revocation on the part of the competent authority in accordance with Canon Nor can a juridical person renounce a privilege granted to it, if the renunciation would be prejudicial to the Church or to others. Canon 81 A privilege is not extinguished on the expiry of the authority of the person who granted it, unless it was given with the clause 'at our pleasure' or another equivalent expression. Canon 82 A privilege which does not burden others does not lapse through non-use or contrary use; if it does cause an inconvenience for others, it is lost if lawful prescription intervenes.
Canon 84 A person who abuses a power given by a privilege deserves to be deprived of the privilege itself. Accordingly, after a warning which has been in vain, the Ordinary, if it was he who granted it, is to deprive the person of the privilege which he or she is gravely abusing; if the privilege has been granted by the Apostolic See, the Ordinary is obliged to make the matter known to it.
Canon 86 In so far as laws define those elements which are essentially constitutive of institutes or of juridical acts, they are not subject to dispensation. He cannot dispense from procedural laws or from penal laws, nor from those whose dispensation is specially reserved to the Apostolic See or to some other authority. Canon 88 The local Ordinary can dispense from diocesan laws and, whenever he judges that it contributes to the spiritual welfare of the faithful, from laws made by a plenary or a provincial Council or by the Episcopal Conference.
Canon 89 Parish priests and other priests or deacons cannot dispense from universal or particular law unless this power is expressly granted to them. Canon 91 In respect of their subjects, even if tinese are outside the territory, those who have the power of dispensing can exercise it even if they themselves are outside their territory; unless the contrary is expressly provided, they can exercise it also in respect of peregrini actually present in the territory; they can exercise it too in respect of themselves.
Canon 93 A dispensation capable of successive applications ceases in the same way as a privilege. It also ceases by the certain and complete cessation of the motivating reason. Title VI: Physical And Juridical Persons Chapter I: The Canonical Status Of Physical Persons Canon 96 By baptism one is incorporated into the Church of Christ and constituted a person in it, with the duties and the rights which, in accordance with each one's status, are proper to Christians, in so far as they are in ecclesiastical communion and unless a lawfully issued sanction intervenes.
In regard to the appointment of guardians and the determination of their powers, the provisions of civil law are to be observed, unless it is otherwise provided in Canon law or unless, in specific cases and for a just reason, the diocesan Bishop has decided that the matter is to be catered for by the appointment of another guardian.

Мы тонем! - крикнул кто-то из техников. ВР начала неистово мигать, когда ядро захлестнул черный поток. Под потолком завыли сирены.
Хейл… - прошептала Сьюзан. - Он и есть Северная Дакота. Снова последовало молчание: Стратмор размышлял о том, что она сказала. - Следопыт? - Он, похоже, был озадачен. - Следопыт вышел на Хейла.
Так в чем же проблема, Фил? - спросил Стратмор, открывая холодильник. - Может, чего-нибудь выпьешь. - Нет, а-а… нет, спасибо, сэр. - Ему трудно было говорить - наверное потому, что он не был уверен, что его появлению рады.
- Я в это не верю.
