Apostolic See or recognized as such by a decree of the same; of

patriarchal right, if it has not obtained the decree of recognition from the Apostolic See. 2. A congregation is: (1) of

pontifical right, if it is erected by the Apostolic See or recognized as such by a decree of the same; (2) of patriarchal right

if, erected by the patriarch or recognized as such by his decree,

and it has not obtained a decree of recognition from the Apostolic See; (3) of eparchial right if, erected by the eparchial

bishop, and it has not obtained a decree of recognition from the

Apostolic See or from the patriarch. 3. An order or a congregation is called clerical when, on account of the object or purpose intended by the founder or in virtue of lawful custom, under
