Resumen: El nombramiento de titulares de oficios
capitales tiene importantes implicaciones sacra-
mentales, un buen número de elementos jurídico-
formales y una notable dimensión prudencial, pas-
toral y aun política. Estas facetas se relacionan con
el derecho al buen gobierno que asiste a la comu-
nidad de fieles. El análisis de las normas y de algu-
nos elementos de la praxis aplicativa de estas di-
mensiones articulan el presente estudio. En primer
lugar se afronta la dimensión jurídico-sacramental
implicada en la provisión de oficios capitales. En se-
gundo lugar se reflexiona sobre la comunión jerár-
quica como situación personal que es verificada en
la provisión. En tercer lugar se estudian los aspectos
de moderación del ministerio episcopal como suje-
to colectivo que son tomados en consideración en
la provisión del oficio capital.
