Day #242: Presbyterorum Ordinis 15

In today’s reading from the Decree on the Ministry and Life of Priests, we begin Chapter III’s section 2 on “Special Spiritual Requirements in the Life of a Priest.”

Following artilce 14’s call for priests to strive to do the will of the Lord, article 15 again emphasizes that point, but in the context of the priest’s duty to be obedient to those in authority over him.

Here are the Scripture citations:

1 Cor 1:27

Phil 2:7-9

Rom 5:19

And the footnotes:

27. Cf. Jn 4:34; 5:30; 6:38.

28. Cf. Acts 13:2.

29. Cf. Eph 5:10.

30. Cf. Acts 20:22.

31. Cf. 2 Cor 12:15.

32. Cf. Eph 4:11-16.
