Canon 133

1. A metropolitan, who presides over a certain province inside

the territorial boundaries of the patriarchal Church, in the eparchies of his province, among other things which are granted to

him by common law, is: (1) to ordain and enthrone bishops of

his province within the time determined by law with due regard

for can. 86, 1, n. 2; (2) to convoke the metropolitan synod at

the times established by the synod of bishops of the patriarchal

Church; to prepare useful questions to be discussed in it, to

preside at the synod, to transfer, postpone, suspend or dissolve

it; (3) to erect a metropolitan tribunal; (4) to oversee that

the faith and ecclesiastical discipline are accurately observed;

(5) to conduct a canonical visitation, if the eparchial bishop

neglected it; (6) to appoint or confirm one who was legitimately

proposed for or elected to office, if the eparchial bishop, not

detained by a just impediment, failed to do so within the time

established by law, and also to appoint the eparchial financial

officer if the eparchial bishop, having been warned, neglected to

appoint one. 2. The metropolitan represents the province in

all juridic matters of the same.
