This pocket manual of canon law is a digest of the 1917 Code. On most subjects, the points of the law are scattered through the Code. By gathering these points under their respective heads and arranging them in alphabetical order, with reference to canon, paragraph, and number in the Code, this manual aims to be a clear, intelligent counselor in the ordinary affairs of Catholic life, and a ready index to the Code for questions that require knowledge of the niceties of ecclesiastical law.
Under the more than 600 titles, there is hardly any conceivable point or topic embraced by the Code that is not brought out and elucidated by the rays focused upon it from every related portion of the Law. And so by its aid the student can at once get a summary of the Church's enactments upon any required subject and with the help of the numbered references can verify and, if need be, supplement the epitomized information.
