The Extraordinary Administration of Ecclesiastical Goods in CCEO: A Missing Update

Iustitia --> Temporal Goods and the Church’s Mission -->The Extraordinary Administration of Ecclesiastical Goods in CCEO: A Missing Update

The previous Latin and Oriental legislation on temporal goods considered extraordinary administration a form of alienation. Such equivalence is absent from CIC c. 1277, which lacks directly corresponding canons in the Oriental Code. Thus, if the new Latin code surpassed the undue classification of extraordinary administration as alienation, the Oriental legislation seems to have remained unchanged. Such a lacuna must be understood within the more general context of the administration of ecclesiastical goods. The article shows that an oriental Bishop of a “minor Church,” who has not synodal legislation to fill this gap, might place relevant acts of administration of goods without any further requirements for validity. At least in a practical-prudential way, it would be appropriate that the Oriental practice followed the Latin legislation or at least respected the principle identified in c. 1277.
