"Can. 901 A priest is entitled to offer Mass for anyone, living or dead." (1983 Code of Canon Law)

"...for the dead are helped by the masses offered by the living" (St. Ephraem the Syrian, Doctor of the Church, 4th Century A.D.)

"Can. 827 From any kind of Mass stipend every hint of business or commercialism should be avoided." (1917 Code of Canon Law)

"Can. 947 Even the semblance of trafficking or trading is to be entirely excluded from Mass offerings." (1983 Code of Canon Law)

"Can. 828 There should be as many Masses applied and celebrated as there are stipends given and accepted." (1917 Code of Canon Law)

"Can. 1385 A person who unlawfully traffics in Mass offerings is to be punished with a censure or other just penalty." (1983 Code of Canon Law)

"Can. 953 [No priest] may accept more offerings for Masses to be celebrated by himself than he can discharge within a year." (1983 Code of Canon Law)

"Can. 948 Separate Masses must be applied for the intentions of those for whom an individual offering, even if small, has been made and accepted." (1983 Code of Canon Law)

"Can. 809 It is basic that Mass can be applied for the living and for the dead undergoing expiation by fire in purgatory, with due regard for the prescription of Canon 2262, § 2, n.2" (1917 Code of Canon Law)

"Can. 946 The Christian faithful who give an offering to apply the Mass for their intention contribute to the good of the Church and by that offering share its concern to support its ministers and works." (1983 Code of Canon Law)

"Can. 949 A [priest] obliged to celebrate and apply Mass for the intention of those who gave an offering is bound by the obligation even if the offerings received have been lost through no fault of his own." (1983 Code of Canon Law)

"Can. 832 It is fundamental that a priest can accept a stipend for the celebration of Mass larger than [that established in that area]; and, unless the local Ordinary prohibits it, [likewise he may accept] one smaller." (1917 Code of Canon Law)

"Can. 954 If in certain churches or oratories more Masses are asked to be celebrated than can be celebrated there, it is permitted for them to be celebrated elsewhere unless the donors have expressly indicated a contrary intention." (1983 Code of Canon Law)

"Can. 831 § 1 It is for the local Ordinary to determine by decree the stipend for manual Masses in his diocese, [and this decree] as far as possible [is to be] laid down in a diocesan Synod; nor is it permitted for a priest to demand one higher." (1917 Code of Canon Law)

"Can. 957 The duty and the right to see that Mass obligations are fulfilled belongs, in the case of churches of the secular clergy, to the local Ordinary; in the case of churches of religious institutes or societies of apostolic life, to their Superiors." (1983 Code of Canon Law)

"Can. 956 Each and every administrator of pious causes and those, whether clerics or lay persons, who are in any way obliged to provide for the celebration of Masses, are to transfer to their Ordinaries, in a manner to be determined by the latter, such Mass obligations as have not been discharged within a year." (1983 Code of Canon Law)

"Can. 950 If a sum of money is offered for the application of Masses without an indication of the number of Masses to be celebrated, the number is to be computed on the basis of the offering established in the place where the donor resides, unless the intention of the donor must be presumed legitimately to have been different." (1983 Code of Canon Law)

"Can. 945 §1 In accordance with the approved custom of the Church, any priest who celebrates or concelebrates a Mass may accept an offering to apply the Mass for a specific intention. §2 It is earnestly recommended to priests that, even if they do not receive an offering, they celebrate Mass for the intentions of Christ's faithful, especially of those in need." (1983 Code of Canon Law)

"Can. 958 §1 The pastor and the rector of a church or other pious place which regularly receives offerings for Masses are to have a special book in which he notes accurately the number of Masses to be celebrated, the intention, the offering given, and the fact of their celebration. §2 The ordinary is obliged to examine these books each year either personally or through others." (1983 Code of Canon Law)

"Can. 825 It is never permitted: 1° To apply Mass for the intention of one who, upon offering the offering, will ask for the application [of a Mass], but has not yet done it, and later to retain the offering for the Mass applied before; 2° To receive an offering for a Mass that by another title must be [offered] and applied; 3° To accept two offerings for the application of the same Mass;; 4° To receive one offering only for the celebration and another for the application of the same Mass, unless it was certainly shown that one stipend was made for the application without celebration." (1917 Code of Canon Law)

"Can. 826 § 1 Stipends that the faithful offer for a Mass either out of their own devotion, as it were by hand, or by an obligation, even perpetual, made by a testator on his heirs, are called manual. § 2 Stipends for foundation Masses are called similar to manual, which cannot be offered in their own place or by those who are to offer them according to the records of the foundation, and likewise those that by law or indult of the Holy See are given to other priests for their satisfaction. § 3 Other stipends that are received from the assets of a foundation are called founded or foundation Masses." (1917 Code of Canon Law)

"Can. 834 § 1 Masses for which celebration a time is expressly prescribed by the offeror [of the stipend] must in every event be celebrated at that time. § 2 If the offeror does not prescribe a time for the celebration of manual Masses: 1° Masses [requested] for urgent causes must be celebrated as soon as possible [and while the cause exists]; 2° In other cases Masses are to be celebrated within the least amount of time given the higher or lower number of Masses. § 3 But if the offeror expressly leaves the time of celebration to the decision of the priest, the priest can pick a time most convenient to himself, with due regard for the prescription of Canon 835." (1917 Code of Canon Law)

"Can. 955 §1 One who intends to transfer to others the celebration of Masses to be applied, is to transfer them as soon as possible to priests of his own choice, provided he is certain that they are of proven integrity. He must transfer the entire offering received, unless it is quite certain that an amount in excess of the diocesan offering was given as a personal gift. Moreover, it is his obligation to see to the celebration of the Masses until such time as he has received evidence that the obligation has been undertaken and the offering received. §2 Unless it is established otherwise, the time within which Masses are to be celebrated begins from the day the priest who is to celebrate them receives them. §3 Those who transfer to others Masses to be celebrated are without delay to record in a book both the Masses which they have accepted and those which they have transferred to others, noting also the offerings for these Masses. §4 Each priest must accurately record the Masses which he has accepted to celebrate and those which he has in fact celebrated." (1983 Code of Canon Law)
