Ecclesiastical Sanctions and the Penal Process

A Commentary on the Code of Canon Law

by William H. Woestman, OMI

Originally published by Saint Paul University, Ottawa, Canada.

Sanctions and Penal Processes may not be the hot favorite topics for canonists, but they form an inseparable part of the legislation of the Church. It intends to bring about the correction and conversion of the guilty, to repair the harm done to the community, to educate and forewarn the faithful to avoid offences, and to promote communion in the Church. The present book by Prof. Woestman who is well known to canonical scholarship through many books to his credit, serves as an invaluable commentary on penal law and procedures in the Code of Canon Law and it enhances his reputation. We find in the book a well-balanced juridical and pastoral approach, an extensive use of magisterial documents, copious useful references, and a thorough commentary on each canon. The invaluable appendices come in handy both in the interpretation and the application of the law, and moreover, they enhance the practical value of the book. The book has an immense value for the students of canon law, canonists, bishops and religious superiors.

The Sacrament of Orders and the Clerical State

by William H. Woestman, OMI

Originally published by Saint Paul University, Ottawa, Canada. This book serves as a canonical companion to the Canons on Holy Orders and the Clerical State.

Even though the literary genus of the code excludes to a great extent the presentation of the doctrinal foundation for various norms, the author has gone beyond the bare bones of the law to present the church's legislation as an integral part of her fleshed out body of living teaching. The book demonstrates a good blend of theology, law and pastoral practice. The volume contains extensive appendices replete with relevant documents of the Holy See, various forms for canonical procedures and other activities. The inclusion of the important, the latest and the not so easily available documents enhances the usefulness of the book. The book will be a good resource for all canonists and priests. Seminarians and their formators would immensely benefit from this very readable and helpful book.
