Item Description...
This important book describes and explains the rights that Roman Catholics have as members of their church. It is a basic reference for those who want to know about or pursue their rights as Catholics. Written in non-technical language, THE RIGHTS OF CATHOLICS IN THE CHURCH provides a solid and centrist explanation of just what Catholics are entitled to by virtue of their baptisms. Avoiding polemics and a strident tone, the author has provided a list, an explanation, and a discussion of what rights Catholics have.The aim of this book is to enhance the sense of justice and fairness within the church community. The mission of the church is advanced when its inner life is regulated by respect and love. The book highlights rights in order to increase the sense of rightful belonging and full participation in the members of the church, especially the laity. The author's intention is to promote involvement and equality among the members of the church, not to foster individualism or litigious attitudes. While it focuses on the lay members of the Roman Catholic Church, who seem most in need of knowledge about their rights, this book really applies to all Catholics, including deacons, priests, bishops, and members of religious communities.

Solid, easy-to-follow primer.  Aug 5, 2007
Professor of Catholic church law Reverend James A. Coriden presents The Rights of Catholics in the Church, a straightforward basic reference for those seeking to know their rights as Catholics under canon law. Chapters offer an overview of the rights of Catholics in the church, including rights to pastoral care, rights to initiatives and activities, rights connected to one's state in life, rights to formation and education, and rights to due process. A final section outlining the limitations on and defenses of one's rights in the church rounds out this solid, easy-to-follow primer.
Great resource  Jun 28, 2007
Very helpful, objective review of what canon law says about the rights of the Catholic faithful. Not polemical in any way. Clear, concise.
The expert takes you through a Canon Law overview  Apr 6, 2007
This is a very positive book. It not only goes through your rights in the Church, but your responsibilities as well, a nice balance and set of reminders.
