Specificity of canonical administrative law and “mission administration”. Ecclesial ministry as a requalification marker for ontological-disciplinary autonomy
ABSTRACT: The need to configure a correct boundary within which to draw up the structure of administrative activity in the Church responds to the urgency to avoid undue and inaccurate transposition of concepts proper to secular juridical fields in the background of Canon law. In fact, in the Church it is not possible to speak of a "public administration-entity" but of an "administration-activity". It is not so much the subject that has to be examined, in view of a claim that is not suited to the foundational (top-down) and non-consociative (bottom-up) nature of the Church; as much as the concrete activities to be carried out within it, in the ideal of a shared responsibility that does not deprive the individual faithful of juridical positions that they can claim, but directs them within correct coordinates. The faithful do not live a dimension of "homo homini lupus", to reach an individual salvific finish line where one place to be conquered excludes that one of another. On the contrary, they pursue, united under the one baptism, the implementation of the mission of Christ, also through those juridical instruments which the Church has endowed through the story, but which are to be understood in their precise peculiarities, even though a relationship can not be excluded of mutual growth with secular law. According to this paradigm, the example of European Union law can be a valid benchmark for describing the particularities of ecclesial reality in a sector as specific as that of administrative law.
