Holy Orders

Three Degrees of the Sacrament of Holy Orders

Priest

Deacon

Bishop

A man can become either a transitional or permanent deacon. During the scarament, the bishop confers the sacrament on the ordinands through laying on of hands and a consecratory prayer. After the completion of the sacrament, the deacon receives the Book of the Gospels, a stole, and a dalmatic. A deacon can help preside at mass, but he cannot turn the bread and wine into the body and blood of Christ. He also cannot perform the sacraments although he may assist.

Becoming a bishop is the fullness of Holy Orders. During the sacrament, the ordinary confers the sacrament on the bishop-elect through laying on of hands and a consecratory prayer. After the completion of the scarament, the bishop receives the Book of the Gospels, a ring, a mitre, and a crosier. The bishop has three main responsibilities. The bishop must teach, govern, and sanctify. The bishop is called to teach others about God and preach the Word of God to all others. The bishop is called to oversee the actions of the church and help to provide for the needs of the church. The bishop is called to ensure that the sacraments are admininstered according to God's standards.

The man who is to become a a priest is presented to the bishop after assent of the community. The bishop confers the sacrament on the ordinand through laying on of hnads and a consecratory prayer. During the sacrament, the priest's hands are annointed with chrism. After the completion of the sacrament, the priest receives a stole and a chasuble. The priest may transform the wine and bread into the blood and body of Christ, he may perform the sacraments, and he is considered the head of the Church.

The form of the sacrament of Holy Orders is "Grant, we pray, Almighty Father, to these your servants, the dignity of the priesthood; renew deep within the spirit of holiness; may they henceforth possess this office which comes from you, O God, and is next in rank to the offcie of Bishop; and by the example of their manner of life, may they instill right conduct." The matter of the scarament of Holy Orders is the element of laying on of the hands and sacred chrism and the gensture is the laying on of the bishop's hands on the head and annointing the hands of the person being ordained.
