In Canon Law, the censure of suspension is the forbiddance of the carrying out of certain acts by a cleric. He can be suspended from discharging acts of a religious character which derive from his ordination, or can be suspended from his exercise of the power of governance, rights and functions which belong to the office he holds. Censure is automatically applied to any cleric who has used physical violence against a bishop, or who has celebrated a sacrament through simony [i.e. having been paid for it]  or to any person who has received his ordination illegitimately.
