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. 13311333;

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.
