RITE FOR ABSOLVING FROM SUSPENSION OR INTERDICT APART FROM SACRAMENTAL CONFESSION AND OF DISPENSING FROM IRREGULARITY
1. If the faculty of absolving anyone from suspension or interdict has been granted to a priest, but the delegation does not prescribe a specified form, then the following form may be used:
Penitent: "I confess to almighty God," etc.
Priest: "May almighty God," etc. "May the almighty and merciful Lord," etc.
By the authority granted me by N., I release you from the bond of suspension (or interdict) which you have incurred (or which you are declared to have incurred) for such and such an act (or such and such a reason); in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. R.: Amen.
2. But if the confessor has been granted the power of dispensing from the irregularity either in the sacramental forum or outside of it, in that case, after he has pronounced the absolution from sins, he adds what follows:
And by the same authority I release you from the irregularity (irregularities, if more than one) you have incurred for such and such an act (or such and such reasons, mentioning them); and I reinstate you and restore you to the exercise of your orders and your offices; in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. R.: Amen.
3. If the person is not in orders, he says:
I reinstate you to the candidacy for all orders, or to other offices as the mandate directs.
4. If it is necessary to restore a title of benefice and to regularize any emoluments gained unlawfully therefrom, he adds:
And I restore to you the title (s) of benefice (s) and regularize any emoluments gained unlawfully therefrom; in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. R.: Amen.
5. Let the priest be careful not to exceed in any way the limits of the faculty granted him.
