Preamble

The Holy Church of God was instituted by the common agreement of the heirs to Aristotle and the disciples of Christos. These wizened people, conscious of the human weakness, wanted that the lesson of the elected officials of God would be transmitted by men who would keep intact the seed of wisdom and revelation.

To this end, the Church, in order to achieve its divine mission as well as possible, decided to institute clear and precise rules, thus allowing for the effective development of its mission of salvation. Thus a distortion of this charter could endanger the Church, in its operation and it’s Holiness. This is why we curse those which, in their foul pride, would have the audacity to contravene it and to scorn the divine laws of the Holy Aristotelian Church.

To protect our values, Titus and the first Bishops defined that there would be Clergy forming part of the life of the city and attached as much to the temporal as with spiritual and they decided that this strengthened the Clergy "in secula seculorum".
They will bear the name of Secular Clergy and will be directed by the prelates of the Church.
At the head there will be only the Holy Father, his advisors in Rome and the Bishops to direct Episcopal areas to Occident and the East.
With the passing of time and evolution of the Church in the kingdoms, the Pontifical Advisors became the ministers of Rome and to be different covered in crimson in the honor of the blood poured by the founders of the Church.
The Bishops kept the color green to represent the color of emerald, the emerald being the rallying sign of the first Aristotelian Priests.
Black was selected for the Low Clergy, because this color, or non-color, is highly represented at the funeral, and is seen like an initiation with spirituality by symbolic death.

Secular Clergy.

The Secular Clergy is charged to instruct the faithful ones, to lead the worship and to administer the rites. They must form part of the life of the city and can; if they consider it necessary, even live to fill the vacancies with the Aristotelian values.


3.Offices


Article 1: An office is a religious function recognized either in this canon law, or in the internal regulations of the Roman congregations, or in the Rules of a religious Order recognized by the Curia.

Article 2: One is only considered as occupying an office when the nomination or election has respected the described procedures.

Article 3.1: The cleric is one who occupies a religious office, and the soldier is one who holds an office in the “Holy Armies,” as opposed to the faithful, who do not occupy any office.
It must be noted that the office of cleric predominates over that of the soldier, and any mixture of the two must be avoided, outside of the “Chaplain.”

Article 3.2: To be considered as soldiers of the Church, the members of the military orders form part of the manpower of the Holy Aristotelian armies, those who are set individually or collectively under the orders of the General Staff of the Holy Armies.
Without exemption of the Primat, only the military clerics of the Church may carry weapons other than ceremonial ones linked to their social status.

Article 4: The faithful may not administer the sacraments, and the clerics may only administer those authorized by their office.

Article 5: Only the faithful, married or not, or a priest can occupy an office, but not a heterodox or a simple believer.

Article 6: The social status of theologist (OOC: level 3 of the Church way) is not a religious status but is necessary to occupy certain offices.

Article 7: The administration of the sacraments may not be profited from, in any way, neither by the cleric nor by the faithful nor by any third person.

Article 8: The offices within the Aristotelian Church are gathered in three categories: principal, secondary and tertiary.

Article 9: The principal offices constitute the hierarchical base of the Aristotelian Church.

Article 10: A single cleric can occupy only one principal office at a time and must choose as soon as possible the one he or she keeps if it occupies more than one of them.

Article 11: The secondary offices are those complementary to the Aristotelian Church, to which the offices of the congregations belong.

Article 12: A single cleric can occupy only two secondary offices at the same time and must choose as soon as possible those he or she keeps if it exceeds this limitation.

Article 13: The tertiary offices are those related to the religious orders or not entering one of the first 2 categories.

Article 14: The cumulation of the tertiary offices is determined in the regulations of each order, as well as the sanctions in the event of prohibited cumulation.

Article 15: The clerics occupying an office of bishop or cardinal carry the title of prelate, because they are the guides of the Church and are entitled to special treatment, due to the acts of worthiness by which their office is taken.

Article 16:: Within the Secular Clergy, a Cleric can be subjected to the direct authority only one other Cleric. He can thus cumulate only duties in conformity with this requirement.

Article 17:: The honorary offices do not take into consideration the calculation of the plurality of office.

Article 18:: Type of offices defining the possibilities of office plurality of the secular clergy:

Honorary Office (title): all titles related to the government of Rome.

Non-exhaustive list: Pope, Cardinal (any standard), Camerlingo, Archdeacon of Rome, Constable of the Holy Armies, Bishop in Partibus and Emeritus, Bishop Primacy and Vice Primacy.

Primary Offices of the Secular Clergy: Bishop (except in Partibus and Emeritus), Priest, and Canon.

Secondary Offices of the Secular Clergy: Archdeacon (any standard except that of Rome), Vicar (any standard), Deacon, Chaplain, and Military Chaplain.

Tertiary Offices of the Secular Clergy: offices related to the Congregations and Orders.

Note: Considered as a soldier of the Church, the Vidame, although not forming part of the secular clergy, is regarded as having a primary duty on the level of the plurality of office.

Type of office defining the honorary level.

High Clergy

The Prelates.

a) The Pope
The head of the prelates, the Pope, the Holy Father, sovereign pontiff. Pontifex Maximus, he is the chief of religion in Rome. The Pope is traced down spiritually from the first Pope, the apostle Titus.
Not to recognize the Pope as spiritual sovereign is not compatible with the statute of faithful.

b) The Cardinals
They have signs of distinction: the round, red hat with the red cloth: "to cover purple is to Cardinalize". The Cardinals, Princes of the Church, have the function of Minister for the Aristotelian Church; they are accountable only to their peers and to the Pope.

c) The Bishops and Archbishops.
They have signs of distinction: the miter and the green cloth: "to cover emerald". After the Sovereign Pontiff and the Cardinals, the third rank in the Church is that of Bishop.

Low Clergy

The low term clergy is not pejorative, it designates, in fact, the majority of the Clergy of the Aristotelian Church since it gathers all those which are not among the prelates and thus form "the foundation" of the Aristotelian Church.
