Canon law—could it possibly have any relevance to your life? More than you might think. This legal system that governs the day-to-day workings of the Roman Catholic Church deals with matters that touch the life of every Catholic.

The authors follow up their successful first book—Surprised by Canon Law: 150 Questions Catholics Ask About Canon Law—with answers to even more questions. Topics include:

  • Can someone be denied a Church funeral?
  • Under what circumstance might a priest be removed from his role?
  • How do parishes merge and what happens to their property?
  • What is excommunication? How is it applied?
  • What is the procedure for the election of a pope?
  • What is the process for declaring someone a saint?

Surprised by Canon Law, Volume 2 is a clear and lively guide to laws that undergird the life of the Church.
