Day #240: Presbyterorum Ordinis 13

Today in the Decree on the Ministry and Life of Priests, we continue our look at “the vocation of priests to the life of perfection.”

Article 13 looks at how priests become holy through the work they do as priests: reading and teaching Scripture, celebrating Mass, and even sometimes giving their very life.

Here are the Scripture citations:

1 Tim 4:15-16
