Canon 45

1. The Roman Pontiff, by virtue of his office (munus), not only

has power over the entire Church but also possesses a primacy of

ordinary power over all the eparchies and groupings of them by

which the proper, ordinary and immediate power which bishops

possess in the eparchy entrusted to their care is both strengthened and safeguarded. 2. The Roman Pontiff, in fulfilling the

office (munus) of the supreme pastor of the Church is always

united in communion with the other bishops and with the entire

Church; however, he has the right, according to the needs of the

Church, to determine the manner, either personal or collegial, of

exercising this function. 3. There is neither appeal nor recourse against a sentence or decree of the Roman Pontiff.
