  Code of Canon Law
…The code, as the principal legislative document of the Church, founded on the juridical-legislative heritage of Revelation and Tradition, is to be regarded as an indispensable instrument to ensure order both in individual and social life, and also in the Church's activity itself.
The greatest care has therefore been taken to ensure that in the lengthy preparation of the Code the wording of the norms should be accurate, and that they should be based on a solid juridical, canonical and theological foundation.
From The Code of Canon Law are derived certain fundamental criteria which govern the people of God.

 Abstinence and Fast -- The Code of Canon Law: A Text and Commentary
The five canons in this chapter of the Code are a summary of part of this document and must not be understood apart from it, especially the very rich discursive section of the document treating the history of penance and its role in the life of every Christian.
Canon 1252 -- All persons who have completed their fourteenth year are bound by the law of abstinence; all adults are bound by the law of fast up to the beginning of their sixtieth year.
Canon 1253 -- It is for the conference of bishops to determine more precisely the observance of fast and abstinence and to substitute in whole or in part for fast and abstinence other forms of penance, especially works of charity and exercises of piety.

 Home Schooling in Canon Law
As a husband and home-schooling father of four by vocation, canon lawyer by profession, and chancellor of a diocese by employment, I feel the need to defend the canonical right of Catholics to home school as an answer to the mistaken notion that home schooling is somehow not a proper option for Catholic parents.
To the contrary, the Code of Canon Law has taken great care to protect parental primacy in seeing to the education of children, whether that parental right and duty is legitimately entrusted to others, or whether it is directly exercised by those who will most immediately answer to God for the raising of their children.
Canon law not only allows but also requires that they make this prudential decision; to act otherwise would be a violation of their consciences and thus present a moral impossibility.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Canon Law
Canon law is the body of laws and regulations made by or adopted by ecclesiastical authority, for the government of the Christian organization and its members.
The common law, therefore, is that which is to be observed with regard to a certain matter, unless the legislator has foreseen or granted exceptions; for instance, the laws regulating benefices contain special provisions for benefices subject to the right of patronage.
The law of these three periods is referred to respectively as the ancient, the new, and the recent law (jus antiquum, novum, novissimum), though some writers prefer to speak of the ancient law, the law of the Middle Ages, and the modern law (Laurentius, "Instit.", n.4).

To understand canon law and to be able to interpret it one needs to understand the purpose of law in the Church, its nature, its characteristics, its scope and the principles of interpretation of canon law.
By the universal law of the Church legislative authority is enjoyed by the supreme authority in the Church, by the diocesan bishop and by particular (i.e., provincial and plenary) councils.
Canon law follows the maxim, ubi legislatio, ibi interpretatio and interpretation is authoritative (and binding in itself) if given by the legislator, by his successor, or by someone to whom the legislator has committed the task of interpretation.

Canon law was more studied and better understood; writings multiplied, some of an historical nature, others practical, according to the inclination of the authors.
Evidently secular law cannot be, strictly speaking, a source of canon law, the State as such having no competence in spiritual matters; yet it may become so by the more or less formal acceptation of particular laws by the ecclesiastical authorities.
Laws in general, and irritant laws in particular, are not retroactive, unless such is expressly declared by the legislator to be the case.

 Q. 8:  Shouldn't we accept the 1983 Code of Canon Law?
A code is a collection of laws, each one being an order of the competent authority: each canon in the 1917 Code of Canon Law was a law of Benedict XV, and each canon in the 1983 Code of Canon Law (commonly called the "New Code") is a law of Pope John Paul II.
For Pope John Paul II, the purpose of the 1983 Code of Canon Law is the expression of the Second Vatican Council’s new ecclesiology (i.e.
Canon 1055, §1 no longer defines marriage by its primary end, the procreation of children, but mentions this only after a secondary end, the good of the spouses.

The Code of Canon Law is not 'Puritanism.'  The canonical laws are indeed the Church’s Sacred Discipline and are binding on Catholics who reject these laws and know they are rejecting the Church.
Canon 915 is promulgated within CIC, Book IV, "The Sanctifying Office of the Church," within Title III, "The Blessed Eucharist," within Chapter I, "The Celebration of the Eucharist," within Article 2, "Participation in the Blessed Eucharist."  Neither this canon 915 nor Bishop Burke's 'notification' applies to the reception of the other Sacraments.
Furthermore, the Code of Canon Law states that "A person who actually procures an abortion incurs a latæ sententiæ excommunication" (canon 1398), and "[those] who obstinately persist in manifest grave sin are not to be admitted to Holy Communion" (canon 915).

 The New Code Of Canon Law   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
In this document the Pope makes it clear that the new Code is a direct outgrowth of Vatican II and reflects the Council, chiefly in two ways, by stressing the collegial process and emphasizing the Church as the People of God.
There are three main thrusts in the new Code of Canon Law: 1) decentralization of Church authority; 2) increased prominence given to the laity ;and 3) reduced number of grounds for excommunication and other penalties, with resulting permission for innovations such as joining the Freemasons and allowing one's body to be cremated.
Another canon lawyer blamed the new Code because it is "only partially in tune with the times." A body of law which merely reflects the times in which it functions is hardly worthy of respect.

The instrument, which the Code is, fully corresponds to the nature of the Church, especially as it is proposed by the teaching of the Second Vatican Council in general, and in a particular way by its ecclesiological teaching.

 Revision of the Code of Canon Law (from canon law) --  Encyclopædia Britannica
A canon is a musical form and compositional technique based on the principle of strict imitation, in which an initial melody is imitated at a specified time interval by one or more parts, either at the unison (the same pitch) or at some other pitch.
fundamental principles of logic: (1) law of contradiction—something cannot exist and not exist at the same time; (2) law of excluded middle—something either exists or it does not, no middle condition is possible; (3) law of identity—something is always identical with itself; 20th-century philosophers have criticized, even rejected, the laws, which derive from ancient...

 Our Catholic Faith - Canon Law: PROMULGATION OF THE NEW CODE OF CANON LAW
Therefore, the new Code which appears today necessarily required the prior work of the Council and, although it was announced together with that ecumenical gathering, it follows it in order of time, since the tasks needed for its preparation could not begin until the Council had ended.
On the contrary, the Code rather looks towards the achievement of order in the ecclesial society, such that while attributing a primacy to love, grace and the charisms, it facilitates at the same time an orderly development in the life both of the ecclesial society and of the individual persons who belong to it.
The instrument, such as the Code is, fully accords with the nature of the Church, particularly as presented in the authentic teaching of the Second Vatican Council seen as a whole, and especially in its ecclesiological doctrine.

If such hope is truly lacking, the baptism is, in accordance with the provisions of particular law, to be deferred and the parents advised of the reason for this.
If, however, the catholic party contracts marriage with a non-Catholic party of oriental rite, the canonical form of celebration is to be observed for lawfulness only; for validity, however, the intervention of a sacred minister is required, while observing the other requirements of law.
It involves a dispensation from an impediment if there is one and from the canonical form if it had not been observed, as well as a referral back to the past of the canonical effects.
