Canon 192

1. In the exercise of his pastoral function, the eparchial

bishop is to show that he is concerned for all the Christian

faithful who are committed to his care, regardless of age, condition, nation or Church sui iuris, both those who live within

the territory of his eparchy and those who are staying in it

temporarily; he is to extend his apostolic spirit also to those

who cannot sufficiently make use of ordinarily pastoral care due

to their condition in life as well as to those who no longer

practice their religion. 2. In a special way the eparchial

bishop is to see that all Christian faithful committed to his

care foster unity among Christians according to principles

approved by the Church. 3. The eparchial bishop is to consider

the non-baptized as being committed to him in the Lord and see

that the love of Christ shines upon them from the witness of the

Christian faithful living in ecclesiastical communion. 4. The

eparchial bishop is to attend to presbyters with special concern

and listen to them as assistants and advisers; he is to protect

their rights and see to it that they correctly fulfill the obligations proper to their state and that means and institutions

which they need are available to them to foster their spiritual

and intellectual life. 5. The eparchial bishop is to see that

the families of his clerics, if they are married, be provided

with adequate support, appropriate protection and social security

in addition to health insurance according to the norm of law.
