PART I .DELICTS AND PENALTIES IN GENERAL
TITLE I: The Punishment of Delicts in General (Cann. 1311 - 1312)
Can.1311 The Church has the innate and proper right to coerce offending members of the Christian faithful
with penal sanctions.
Can.1312 §1. The following are penal sanctions in the Church:
1/ medicinal penalties, or censures, which are listed in cann. 1331–1333;
2/ expiatory penalties mentioned in can. 1336.
§2. The law can establish other expiatory penalties which deprive a member of the Christian faithful of
some spiritual or temporal good and which are consistent with the supernatural purpose of the Church.
§3. Penal remedies and penances are also used; the former especially to prevent delicts, the latter to
substitute for or to increase a penalty.
