The Canon Law of Marriage and the Family

£50.00

Product description

This book is not a "how to" nor a step-by-step guide to getting a Catholic Church annulment. This is a book for those trying to reach a true understanding of the Canons on marriage, as well as the theology that underlies and supports these canons. The result is a beautifully and well-written treatise of the marriage law of the Catholic Church. While writing his book, the author was a renowned professor of Canon Law at the College of St. Patrick in Maynooth, Ireland. And despite fulfillment of this lofty purpose and the impressive credentials of the author, this book is very readable for cleric and layperson alike.
The First of three parts of this book takes each of the canons on marriage and comments on them. These commentary reference numerous sources of authentic Church interpretation, as well as learned studies amassed in the Church intellect in the first fifteen years after the 1983 Code of Canon Law was first promulgated. This author's knowledge and experience seems limitless and his sharing of it all is done in a clear and logical fashion, like a very good class lecture.
Part Two of the book outlines the canons on procedure in marriage annulment cases. This section would be the most helpful for anyone looking for information on the system of petitioning for an annulment. It explains the basis for such procedural aspects as use of experts, when and how. There are forms contained in this book but they are specific to the Tribunals in the Republic of Ireland.
Part Three is where the reader can see how fine a writer this author is. Here he discourses on the role of the family in the Church. His all too short discussion of the Church's position on the Internal Forum is clear, yet leaves one knowledgeable to continue on in his or her own mind.
After writing this book, the author was ordained the Bishop of the Irish Diocese of Dromore. It is refreshing and exciting to know a work of this high caliber was reasoned and crafted by a Bishop himself.
