Entre théologie et droit canonique : l'ermite catholique face à l'obéissance

Abstract : The study examines the question of the obedience of the hermit, with particular focus on the case of the hermit who chooses to live, according to canon 603 § 2 of the Code of Canon Law, "under the direction" of the diocesan bishop. Neither the obedience that any member of the Catholic faithful owes the Magisterium, nor that resulting from evangelical counsels as formulated within an institute devoted to the consecrated life, should prevent the Catholic hermit from progressing on a path of very great liberty in the search for God. The institutional framework provided by the universal legislator is revealed as sufficiently flexible for even quite exceptional vocations to be lived in full communion with the Church.
