Canon 159

In the metropolitan Church sui iuris over which he presides, beyond those things which are attributed to him by common law or

particular law established by the Roman Pontiff, the metropolitan

is competent: (1) to ordain and enthrone bishops of the same

Church within the time determined by law; (2) to convoke the

council of hierarchs according to the norm of law, to prepare

useful questions to be discussed in it, to preside, 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 canonical visitations in eparchies, if the eparchial bishop neglected to do it;

(6) to appoint an administrator of an eparchy in the case mentioned in can. 221, n. 4; (7) to appoint or confirm him who was

legitimately proposed or elected to office, if the eparchial

bishop, not detained by a just impediment, omitted to do so within the time established by law and also to appoint the eparchial

finance officer if the eparchial bishop, having been warned, neglected to appoint him; (8) to communicate the acts of the Roman

Pontiff to the eparchial bishops and others to whom they pertain,

unless the Apostolic See directly provides for it, and see to the

faithful execution of the prescriptions which are contained in

these acts.
