USCCA21 – Holy Orders Part 1 – U. S. Catholic Catechism for Adults w/ Arch. George Lucas

USCCA21 Chapter 20 Holy Orders Part 1

Archbishop Lucas offers insights on the US Catholic Catechism for Adults Chapter20:

The Church adopted the term order from its use in the Roman Empire, where it referred to a governing group. In the Sacrament of Holy Orders, there are three degrees or “orders”: bishop, priest, and deacon. The rite of ordination is the sacramental act that makes this possible. Ordination “confers a gift of the Holy Spirit that permits the exercise of a ‘sacred power’ …which can come only from Christ himself through the Church” (CCC, no. 1538).

 

The Most Reverend George J. Lucas leads the Archdiocese of Omaha.
