Liturgical Reflection

July 21, 2015

The Priest possesses within the Church the sacred power of Orders to offer Sacrifice in the person of Christ. The ordained priest presides by this fact over the faithful people gathered here and now, presides over their prayer, proclaims to them the message of salvation, associates the people with himself in the offering of the Sacrifice through Christ in the Holy Spirit to God the Father, and gives his brothers and sisters the Bread of eternal life and partakes of it with them. The priest by his bearing of dignity, humility and reverence, conveys to the faithful the living presence of Christ in our midst. General Instruction of the Roman Missal, Number 93.
