Day #245: Presbyterorum Ordinis 18

In today’s reading from the Decree on the Ministry and Life of Priests, begin Chapter III’s final section on “Aids to the Life of Priests.”

In article 18, we look at the aids available for priests to grow in their spiritual life.  The aids pretty well mirror the ministries described in artilces 4-6: Scripture and the Eucharist.

Here is the Scripture citation:

Rom 8:15

And the footnotes:

54. Cf. Code of Canon Law, 125 ff.
