Priesthood - Sacrament of Holy Orders

Sacrament of Holy Orders -- As priests, men are called to lay down their lives for everyone they serve.

In an ordination, men are called forth by name and promise obedience to the bishop.

There are three levels of ordination: deacon, priest, and bishop.

A stole is placed around the new priest’s shoulders and a chasuble is given to them, as a sign of them being given a sacred character to be in persona Christi (in the person of Christ).

He also is given the graces to put into practice the gifts of sanctification, teaching, and ruling, which they receive from the Holy Spirit.

Priests are given the power of Christ to carry out the Sacraments from the moment they are ordained.

St John Vianney says, “The priest continues the work of redemption on earth… If we really understood the priest on earth, we would die not of fright but of love… The Priesthood is the love of the heart of Jesus.”
