Chapter 10: Catholic priests are essential for our healing

Themes: salvation, the Church
Charles Pritchard

Jesus Christ is the great high priest, the Redeemer of our sins. The Apostles were Jesus Christ’s first bishops. He gave them the authority, through the first pope, St Peter, to ordain priests in the Sacrament of Holy Orders so that they could fulfil his salvific ministry. This tradition of priestly Ordination has continued to this day. The Holy Sacraments administered by priests are God’s gifts to cleanse and strengthen our souls, to bring God’s love and peace into our hearts, and to help us to overcome evil.
