Canon 220

With regard to a vacant see located inside the territorial boundaries of a patriarchal Church, in addition to cann. 225-232 and

without prejudice to cann. 222 and 223, the following are to be

observed: (1) the patriarch is to inform the Apostolic See as

soon as possible of the vacancy of the eparchial see; (2) until

the appointment of an administrator of the eparchy, the ordinary

power of the eparchial bishop transfers to the patriarch, unless

otherwise provided by the particular law of the patriarchal

Church or by the Roman Pontiff; (3) the patriarch is to appoint

an administrator of the eparchy within a month of available time

from the reception of notice of the vacancy of the eparchial see,

after consulting the bishops of the patriarchal curia, if there

are any, otherwise after consulting the permanent synod. If the

month elapses and this is not done, the appointment of an administrator devolves to the Apostolic See; (4) the administrator of

the eparchy, after making the profession of faith in the presence

of the patriarch obtains authority, but is not to exercise it unless he has taken canonical possession of the office by presenting the letters of his appointment to the college of eparchial

consultors; (5) the patriarch is to see that a worthy and suitable eparchial bishop be assigned to the vacant eparchial see as

soon as possible, but not beyond the limits established by common

law.
