"Ordained is a word we don’t hear much, but it’s a fitting description for what takes place at these intricate liturgies. In making promises of obedience and chastity–in giving their entire lives to the Church–these men are “ordered” to Jesus Christ. By their self-gift, they become instruments of His grace. In the sacraments they will administer, the men will act in persona Christi–in the person of Christ–as when they absolve penitents from their sins. Through their gift, they become so ordered to Christ as to act not just like Him, but as Him." - Brandon Briscoe
