Episode 18: Holy Orders - Why Bishops, Priests, and Deacons?
Jan 10, 2021 Season 1 Episode 18
Father Joshua Link and Father Joseph Sevcik

Continuing our series on the Sacraments at the Service of Communion, today we look at the Doctrine of Holy Orders.  What is the Sacrament of Holy Orders? What is the difference between the priesthood in the Old Testament and the priesthood in the New Testament? How do priests participate in the High Priesthood of Jesus Christ? What does it mean for the priesthood to have an ontological dimension rather than just a functional dimension? Finally, we answer a question concerning Holy Orders and women by focusing on mutual upbuilding and the goal of the Christian Life being oriented toward becoming a saint.
