Day #249: Presbyterorum Ordinis 22

Today we complete our reading of the Decree on the Ministry and Life of Priests with the “Conclusion and Exhortation.”

The Council Fathers conclude the document on priests with an acknowledgement of the many challenges posed by the modern world and an affirmation for priests that they are never alone.

Here are the Scripture citations:

Heb 11:8

Mk 4:27

Jn 16:33

Eph 3:20-21

And the footnotes:

1. Cf. Jn 3:16.

2. Cf. 1 Pt 2:5.

3. Cf. Eph 2:22.

4. Cf. Roman Pontifical, on the ordination of priests.

5. Cf. Eph 3:9.

6. Cf. Col 3:3.
