Holy Orders is the sacrament through which the mission entrusted by Christ to His apostles continues to be exercised in the Church until the end of time. From the very beginning of human history, men have "acted out" their feelings towards God by means of sacrifice. From all that God had given, man would take the very best (whether it was a lamb or a bullock or fruit or grain) and offer it back to God—destroying it upon an altar to symbolize the act of giving.

No priest or deacon would or could wish for more than this extraordinary privilege of acting in persona Christi. In the sacrament of Holy Orders, Christ has provided us with an essential link to Himself. Above all else, Holy Orders makes possible the extraordinary gift of the Sacrifice of the Mass—a gift from Christ himself.
