Taking into consideration the ecclesiology of the Second Vatican Council and the precepts of the Code of Canon Law promulgated in 1983, the author is concerned with the temporal goods of the Church. The Church is made up of human and divine elements, which make up only one and indivisible reality. The Church uses temporal goods in so much as demands its mission, while not loosing sight of its spiritual goal. The Code speaks of the inherent right of the Church to temporal goods, the objectives of ecclesiastical goods, the further specification of subjects that are implied by the concept of »Catholic Church«, the subject of ownership, the concept and administration of ecclesiastical goods, the administration of goods of private judicial persons, whose goods are not of the »church«, the concept of »Church« in Book 5 of the Code, the importance of the objectives of ecclesiastical goods, and the laws that regulate ecclesiastical goods.
