Canon 552

1. A temporarily professed member can be dismissed by the superior general with the consent of the council unless the dismissal

is reserved in the statutes to the eparchial bishop or another

authority to which the order or congregation is subject. 2. In

deciding about the dismissal, in addition to other conditions

which might be prescribed by the statutes, the following must be

observed: (1) the reasons for dismissal must be grave, and on

the part of the member, external and imputable; (2) the lack of

the religious spirit, which can be a cause of scandal to others,

is a sufficient cause for dismissal if repeated warnings, along

with salutary penances, have been in vain; (3) the reasons for

dismissal must be certain in the mind of the dismissing superior,

although it is not necessary that they be formally proven. Yet,

they must be always made known to the member, granting the member

full opportunity of defence, and the responses are to be faithfully submitted to the dismissing superior. 3. A recourse

against the decree of dismissal has suspensive effect.
