Q. 1. I heard there is a Supreme Law of the Catholic Church. What is that Law?
A. 1. The answer to your question is found in Canon Law # 1752 where it makes reference to "The Manner of Proceeding in the Transfer of Pastors." In that section, it states: "In cases of transfer the prescripts of ? can. 1747 are to be applied, canonical equity is to be observed, and the salvation of souls, which must always be the supreme law in the Church, is to be kept before one’s eyes." [Canon Law # 1752]
The Supreme Law of the Catholic Church is the "Salvation of souls." That is the first objective. This Supreme Law concerns the clergy, the religious brothers and sisters, the faithful members of the Church and those who have yet to be converted. No one is excluded.
