Holy Orders
1536 Holy Orders is the sacrament through
which the mission entrusted by Christ
to his apostles continues to be exercised
in the Church until the end of time:
thus it is the sacrament of apostolic ministry.
It includes three degrees: episcopate,
presbyterate, and diaconate.

 

1549 Through the ordained ministry,
especially that of bishops and priests,
the presence of Christ as head of the Church
is made visible in the midst of the community
of believers. In the beautiful expression of
St. Ignatius of Antioch, the bishop is
typos tou Patros: he is like the living image
of God the Father.
