At any rate, here is this week's poll question:
True or False? The priest receives the fullness of the sacrament of Holy Orders.Vote in the poll in my sidebar.
As for the previous poll, here are the results:
- True or False?: The ministerial priesthood differs in essence from the common priesthood of the faithful.
- True: 21 (81%)
- False: 5 (19%)
- TRUE, cf. no. 1592: The ministerial priesthood differs in essence from the common priesthood of the faithful because it confers a sacred power for the service of the faithful. The ordained ministers exercise their service for the People of God by teaching (munus docendi), divine worship (munus liturgicum) and pastoral governance (munus regendi).
