Canon 431

1. Without the written consent of the major superior, a religious cannot be promoted after the first vows to dignities or

offices outside the institute, except those which are conferred

in an election by the synod of bishops of a patriarchal Church

and without prejudice to can. 89, 2; having fulfilled the function, the religious must return to the monastery, order or congregation. 2. A religious who becomes a patriarch, bishop or

exarch: (1) remains bound by the vows and by the other obligations of his profession, except those which he himself prudently

judges incompatible with his dignity. He lacks active and passive voice in his own monastery, order or congregation, and is

not subject to the authority of the superiors, and remains subject in virtue of the vow of obedience only to the Roman Pontiff;

(2) however, having fulfilled the office (munus), he is to return to his monastery, order or congregation, without prejudice

to what is specified in cann. 62 and 211, he can possess active

and passive voice, if the typicon or statutes permit it. 3. A

religious who becomes a patriarch, bishop or exarch: (1) if

through profession he lost the capacity of acquiring the ownership of goods, he has the use, usufruct and administration of

goods which come to him; whatever a patriarch, eparchial bishop,

or exarch acquires, he acquires for the patriarchal Church, eparchy, or exarchy; all others, for the monastery or order; (2)

if through profession he did not lose the ownership of goods, he

regains the use, usufruct, and administration of the goods which

he had; he fully acquires for himself those which come to him

afterwards; (3) in either case he must dispose of the goods coming to him according to the will of the donors when they do not

come to him for personal reasons.
