An auxiliary bishop, in the Roman Catholic Church, is an additional bishop assigned to a diocese because the diocesan bishop is unable to perform his functions, the diocese is so extensive that it requires more than one bishop to administer, or the diocese is attached to a royal or imperial office requiring the diocesan bishop's protracted presence at court. According to Canon law, no bishop can be ordained without title to a certain and distinct episcopal see which he governs either actually or potentially, therefore auxiliary bishops are titular bishops to sees that no longer exist.

Bishop Richard Pates, current auxiliarybishop of the Archdiocese of Saint Paul and Minneapolis and the Titular Bishop of Suacia.
According to Canon law, no bishop can be ordained without title to a certain and distinct episcopal see which he governs either actually or potentially, therefore auxiliarybishops are titular bishops to sees that no longer exist.
A titular bishop is a bishop of the Catholic Church who is not in charge of a diocese (Code of Canon Law, Canon 376).
Examples of bishops belonging to this category are coadjutor bishops, auxiliarybishops, bishops emeriti, vicars apostolic, nuncios, superiors of departments in the Roman Curia, and Cardinal Bishops of suburbicarian dioceses (since they are not in charge of the suburbicarian dioceses).
Cardinal Bishops of suburbicarian dioceses are also titular bishops, but they hold titles to existing dioceses, namely one or more of the suburbicarian sees, but while they do not govern their see they are obliged to give it their patronage.
