Father Warren leads our discussion of the Sacrament of Holy Orders–the ordination of a bishop as a Successor of the Apostles, and of priests and deacons as participants in the bishop’s work.
Over the next few weeks, we will move from this Sacrament, through a discussion of natural law and human justice and sinfulness, to the Sacrament of Matrimony. As Holy Orders and Matrimony are together the “Sacraments at the Service of Communion,” each week’s handouts will also reflect on virtuous living and the ways we fully realize our calling as human creatures of God, and as members of the redeemed Body of Christ. Reading each of the handouts from each of these weeks should prepare us as we move into the “deeper waters” of Catholic faith.
