Religious Order Priesthood
A Religious priest is called from a community of faith to commit to the life of the religious community as a leader of prayer and life-long member of the community.
“The priest…is something transcendant: through baptism he brings souls to birth, through the sacrament of penance he purifies them, through communion he gives them our Lord’s Body as He Himself did at the Last Supper, and at their death He helps them to appear before the Beloved by giving them their final forgiveness and strength…Every single day of his life, a priest does what Jesus teaches men to know, love and serve their good Master. What a vocation!” --Charles De Foucauld
