The danger with quoting the 1917 Code of Canon Law is the provision of Canon 6 §1 in the 1983 Code.

comment Why do high-church people call their personalized Bible study exercises “devotionals”?
A sacramental can be a noun in its own right, as well as an adjective.

It does appear that the 1984 Caeremoniale Episcoporum is not available online. I'm not even certain it's been printed in English (although there is a French printed translation).

I am confident that there are no occasions where mitres or birettas are worn to pray. Zucchetti tend to remain when other headgear is removed, but even they are taken off in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament.

comment Do Catholic priests have to report child abuse confessed in secret?
@fredsbend Fixed grille, easy: Canon 964. Unconventional confession, less easy, but Canon 964 could be brought to bear there too. Canon 986 allows the setting of a particular time and place for confessions to be heard.

comment Why did Paul go to Arabia?
It's possible that Paul was using Arabia simply to mean "a land of Arabs" as opposed to Jewish people, rather than what we now call Arabia/Saudi Arabia/the Arabian Peninsula. I'm not sure how to verify how the word Arabia was used in the first century though.

comment What is the Catholic point of view towards animals?
The seventh commandment, Respect for the Integrity of Creation. See paragraphs 2416-2418 [as Mawia quoted] at vatican.va/archive/ENG0015/__P8B.HTM, which gives some references in addition to Mawia's.
