Canon Law and Changes of Catechism


Are there any statutes in the Code of Canon Law governing the process of making changes to the Catechism of the Catholic Church first promulgated in 1992?

In general, what steps should be gone through in order to make revisions to the Catechism?


The Pope makes canon law and he can re-write the Catechism as he sees fit. Pope John Paul II promulgated both the current Code and the new Catechism.
