The wording of the first Code of Canon Law which the Latin Church had was ordained by Pope St. Pius X in 1904. The coding task, however, was not the work of a closed group of experts, it took into account the views of Latin Bishops, which was asked at two different times, both were asked the bishops of Ecuador. In this paper it is studied, from the documents stored in the Vatican Secret Archives, the contribution of the Ecuadorian bishops during the first time when the bishops were asked about major changes and corrections to be made in the canon law force, in particular, their suggestions about the spiritual and temporal goods of the Church.
