Sanctions in the Church » Delicts and Penalties in General » The Punishment of Delicts in General
Canon 1312. §1. The following are penal sanctions in the Church:

1. medicinal penalties, or censures, which are listed in can. 1331-1333;

2. expiatory penalties mentioned in can. 1336.

§2. The law can establish other expiatory penalties which deprive a member of the Christian faithful of some spiritual or temporal good and which are consistent with the supernatural purpose of the Church.

§3. Penal remedies and penances are also used; the former especially to prevent delicts, the latter to substitute for or to increase a penalty.
