TITLE X: PRESCRIPTION (Cann. 197 - 199)
Can. 197 Prescription, as a means of acquiring or of losing a subjective right, or as a means of freeing oneself from obligations, is, apart from the exceptions prescribed in the canons of this Code, accepted by the Church in the manner in which it is adopted in the civil legislation of each country.
1° rights and obligations which are of divine law, whether natural or positive;
2° rights which can be obtained only by apostolic privilege;
3° rights and obligations which bear directly on the spiritual life of Christ's faithful;
4° the certain and undisputed boundaries of ecclesiastical territories;
5° Mass offerings and obligations;
6° the provision of an ecclesiastical office which, in accordance with the law, requires the exercise of a sacred order;
7° the right of visitation and the obligation of obedience, so that Christ's faithful could not be visited by an ecclesiastical authority and would no longer be subject to any authority.
