BOOK VI : SANCTIONS IN THE CHURCH

PART I : OFFENCES AND PUNISHMENTS IN GENERAL

TITLE I: THE PUNISHMENT OF OFFENCES (Cann. 1311 - 1312)

IN GENERAL

Can. 1311 The Church has its own inherent right to constrain with penal sanctions Christ's faithful who commit offences.

Can. 1312 §1 The penal sanctions in the Church are:

medicinal penalties or censures, which are listed in cann. 1331 - 1333;

expiatory penalties, mentioned in Can. 1336;

§2 The law may determine other expiatory penalties which deprive a member of Christ's faithful of some spiritual or temporal good, and are consistent with the Church's supernatural purpose.

§3 Use is also made of penal remedies and penances: the former primarily to prevent offences, the latter rather to substitute for or to augment a penalty.
