The [[Latin Church]] is guided by its own particular Canons. The 23 ''[[sui iuris]]'' Churches which collectively make up the [[Eastern Catholic Churches]] have been invited by the Catholic Church to codify their own particular laws and submit them to the [[pope]] so that there may be a full, complete Code of all religious law within Catholicism. Pope [[John Paul II]] promulgated Code of Canons of the Eastern Churches on October 18, 1990, by the document ''Sacri Canones''.<ref>''AAS''82 (1990) pp. 1033-1063</ref> The Code came into force of law on October 1, 1991.<ref>Dr. Thomas Kuzhinapurath, ''Salvific Law: Salvific Character of CCEO, An Historical Overview'', Malankara Seminary Publications, Trivandrum, 2008, p.79</ref>
