Day #236: Presbyterorum Ordinis 9

Today in the Decree on the Ministry and Life of Priests, we conclude our reflection on priests’ relationships with others.

In the past few days, we have looked at priests’ relationship with their bishop (article 7) and each other (article 8).  Article 9 looks at priests’ relationship with the laity.  This is a very insightful passage for the us laity to be familiar with.

The article ends with a brief acknowledgment of those non-Catholic Christians and even non-Christians.

Here is the Scripture citation:

Mt 20:28
