Canon 69 - Once the convocation has taken place according to the canons, if two-thirds of the bishops who are obliged to be present at the synod of bishops of the patriarchal Church, excluding those who are detained by a legitimate impediment, are present at the designated location, the synod is to be declared canonical and can proceed with the election. If an election is not successful within fifteen days from the opening of the synod of bishops of the patriarchal Church, the matter devolves to the Roman Pontiff.Canon 70 - Unless particular law establishes otherwise, the one who is elected by those present in the first session is to preside over the synod of bishops of the patriarchal Church for the election of the patriarch; in the meantime the presidency is reserved to the administrator of the patriarchal Church. The positions of tellers and secretary can also be filled by priests and deacons according to the norm of particular law. All who are present at the synod are bound to the serious obligation of observing secrecy concerning those matters which directly or indirectly concern the balloting. He is elected who obtains two-thirds of the votes, unless particular law establishes that after an appropriate number of ballots, at least three, an absolute majority of the votes suffices, and the election is to be conducted according the norms of can. Canon 73 - If the one who is elected is at least a legitimately proclaimed bishop, the presiding officer, or if the presiding officer was elected, the senior bishop according to episcopal ordination, in the name of the entire synod of bishops of the patriarchal Church, is immediately to communicate the election to the one who is elected according to the formula and manner used in that patriarchal Church.Canon 47 - When the Roman see is vacant or entirely impeded nothing is to be innovated in the governance of the entire Church; however, special laws enacted for those circumstances are to be observed.Canon 48 - In this Code the term "Apostolic See" or "Holy See" applies not only to the Roman Pontiff but also, unless it is otherwise prescribed by the law or the nature of the matter indicates otherwise, dicasteries and other institutes of the Roman curia. The College of Bishops Canon 49 - The college of bishops, whose head is the Roman Pontiff and whose members are the bishops by virtue of sacramental ordination and hierarchical communion with the head and members of the college, and in which the apostolic body continually endures, together with its head, and never without its head, is also the subject of supreme and full power over the universal Church. The college of bishops exercises power over the entire Church in a solemn manner in an ecumenical council. The college exercises the same power through the united action of the bishops dispersed in the world, which action as such has been initiated or has been freely accepted by the Roman Pontiff so that a truly collegial act results. It is for the Roman Pontiff, in keeping with the needs of the Church, to select and promote the ways by which the college of bishops is to exercise collegially its function regarding the entire Church. It is for the Roman Pontiff alone to convoke an ecumenical council, to preside over it personally or through others, to transfer, suspend or dissolve it, and to confirm its decrees. It is for the same Roman Pontiff to determine matters to be treated in a council and to establish the order to be followed in the same council; to the questions proposed by the Roman Pontiff the fathers of a council can add other questions, to be approved by the same Roman Pontiff. It is the right and obligation of all and only the bishops who are members of the college of bishops to participate in an ecumenical council with a deliberative vote. The supreme authority of the Church can also call others who are not bishops to an ecumenical council and determine what part they take in it.
Canon 8 - In full communion with the Catholic Church on this earth are those baptized persons who are joined with Christ in its visible structure by the bonds of profession of faith, of the sacraments and of ecclesiastical governance. Since catechumens are in union with the Church in a special manner, that is, under the influence of the Holy Spirit, they ask to be incorporated into the Church by explicit choice and are therefore united with the Church by that choice just as by a life of faith, hope and charity which they lead; the Church already cherishes them as its own. The Church has special care for catechumens, invites them to lead the evangelical life and introduces them into participation in the Divine Liturgy, the sacraments and the divine praises, and already grants them various prerogatives which are proper to Christians.Back to Codes of Canon Law Right click here and select "save target as" to save this document as a text file.Preliminary Canons Canon 1 - The canons of this Code affect all and solely the Eastern Catholic Churches, unless, with regard to relations with the Latin Church, it is expressly stated otherwise.Canon 58 - Patriarchs of Eastern Churches precede all bishops of any degree everywhere in the world, with due regard for special norms of precedence established by the Roman Pontiff. Patriarchs of Eastern Churches, even if some are of later times, are all equal by reason of patriarchal dignity with due regard for the precedence of honor among them. The order of precedence among the ancient patriarchal sees of the Eastern Churches is that in the first place comes the see of Constantinople, after that Alexandria, then Antioch and Jerusalem. Among the other patriarchs of the Eastern Churches, precedence is ordered according to the antiquity of the patriarchal see. Among the patriarchs of the Eastern Churches who each are of the same title but who preside over different patriarchal Churches, he has precedence who was first promoted to the patriarchal dignity. In churches which are designated for the Christian faithful of the Church over which he presides and in liturgical celebrations of the same Church, a patriarch precedes other patriarchs, even if they are greater in virtue of title of the see or senior according to promotion. A patriarch who currently holds patriarchal power precedes those who retain the title of a patriarchal see which they once held. It is not permitted for anyone either before or during the synod of bishops of the patriarchal Church to be involved in the election of the patriarch. 947-957 are to be observed, every contrary custom being reprobated unless it is established otherwise by common law. All bishops legitimately convoked are bound by the grave obligation to be present at the election. If a certain bishop considers himself to be detained by a just impediment, he is to submit his reasons in writing to the synod of bishops of the patriarchal Church.Canon 61 - A patriarch can have a procurator at the Apostolic See appointed by him with the prior assent of the Roman Pontiff. The Election of Patriarchs Canon 63 - A patriarch is canonically elected in the synod of bishops of the patriarchal Church. The synod of bishops of the patriarchal Church must be convened in the patriarchal residence or in another place to be designated by the administrator of the patriarchal Church with the consent of the permanent synod. The synod of bishops of the patriarchal Church must be convened within one month of the vacancy of the see with due regard for establishing a longer term in particular law, but not, however, beyond two months. In the election of a patriarch all and only members of the synod of bishops of the patriarchal Church enjoy an active vote. It is forbidden for anyone other than the members of the synod of bishops of the patriarchal Church to be present in the room during the election of a patriarch, except those clerics who are admitted as tellers or secretary of the synod according to the norms of can. The legitimacy of the impediment is to be decided upon by the bishops who are present in the designated place at the first session of the synod.
