1910 New Catholic Dictionary
(Latin: eliere, to choose)
Selection of a person for a post by the votes of those authorized to fill the vacancy. In canon law, its ordinary meaning is the appointment, by legitimate electors, of a fit person to an ecclesiastical office. In Scripture, the calling or selection by God of chosen servants, like Saint Paul, "a vessel of election" (Acts 9); and all Christians: "knowing, brethren beloved of God, your election" (1 Thessalonians 1).
