Holy Orders: The Image of Christ
The seven sacraments hold a special place in the Christian life. The CTS ‘Sacraments – Meeting Christ’ series looks at each one as a privileged moment in which to meet Christ, gives practical advice and unfolds the scriptural roots and the long and rich tradition that makes each sacrament a microcosm of Christian life.
All Christians take part in the priesthood of Christ but some are called to serve the Church in a special way. At a time when there is much confusion over the nature of the priesthood, this booklet delineates the Church’s teaching on the Sacrament of Holy Orders and its grounding in scripture and tradition.
