Can. 1 The canons of this Code concern only the Latin Church.
Can. 2 For the most part the Code does not determine the rites to be observed in the
celebration of liturgical actions. Accordingly, liturgical laws which have been in effect
hitherto retain their force, except those which may be contrary to the canons of the Code.
Can. 3 The canons of the Code do not abrogate, nor do they derogate from, agreements
entered into by the Apostolic See with nations or other civil entities. For this reason,
these agreements continue in force as hitherto, notwithstanding any contrary provisions of
Can. 4 Acquired rights, and likewise privileges hitherto granted by the Apostolic See
to either physical or juridical persons, which are still in use and have not been revoked,
remain intact, unless they are expressly revoked by the canons of this Code.
Can. 5 §1 Universal or particular customs which have been in effect up to now but are
contrary to the provisions of these canons and are reprobated in the canons of this Code,
are completely suppressed, and they may not be allowed to revive in the future. Other
contrary customs are also to be considered suppressed, unless the Code expressly provides
otherwise, or unless they are centennial or immemorial: these latter may be tolerated if
the Ordinary judges that, in the circumstances of place and person, they cannot be
§2 Customs apart from the law, whether universal or particular, which have been in effect hitherto, are retained.
Can. 6 §1 When this Code comes into force, the following are abrogated:
1° the Code of Canon Law promulgated in 1917;
2° other laws, whether universal or particular, which are contrary to the provisions of this Code, unless it is otherwise expressly provided in respect of particular laws;
3° all penal laws enacted by the Apostolic See, whether universal or particular, unless they are resumed in this Code itself;
4° any other universal disciplinary laws concerning matters which are integrally reordered by this Code.
§2 To the extent that the canons of this Code reproduce the former law, they are to be assessed in the light also of canonical tradition.
Jesus Explained The Eucharist The Day After Feeding The 5000
"Amen, amen, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you do not have life within you.

Today Some Cannot Accept The Gift Just As It Was In The Time Of Jesus
"'But there are some of you who do not believe.' Jesus knew from the beginning the ones who would not believe and the one who would betray him. And he said, 'For this reason I have told you that no one can come to me unless it is granted him by my Father.' As a result of this, many (of) his disciples returned to their former way of life and no longer accompanied him. Jesus then said to the Twelve, 'Do you also want to leave?' Simon Peter answered him, 'Master, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life.'" John 6:64-68
