THE SACRAMENT OF PENANCE
PASTORAL AND INTER-RITUAL DIFFICULTIES REGARDING RESERVED SINS AND LATAE SENTENTIAE CENSURES (PART I)
This article is based on a research made by Fr. Vinson Joseph to identify the canonical nuances of the reserved sins, which is found, in a strict sense, only in the CCEO. This is compared with the parallel system, the latae sententiae censures especially non-declared excommunication and interdict according CIC. The author claims that these two systems are theoretically and legally not equal. The existence of these two types of reservations concerning the sacrament of penance creates injustices, legal confusions and illegal practices.
