The Sacrament of Holy Orders or Priesthood

This is the sacrament through which Christ continues his work in the church. God is ever calling men and women to work for him. John Paul II said that all young people should examine this call.

 

All are called to serve in some special way; some are called to married life and parenthood and some are called to the priesthood and religious life. All of us must give ourselves courageously to this call and see how our Lord wants us to serve him. As a priest/deacon or as a professed religious, God calls us to emulate his Christ, our Lord, and serve others like Christ himself served. Christ continues his work through the Church, through those people who generously answer his call. Is God calling you to serve?
