The Catholic Church recognizes seven sacraments, instituted by Christ Himself, which are outward signs of an inward grace acting in our souls.
The Sacrament of Holy Orders is the continuation of Crist’s priesthood which he bestowed upon His Apostles. In the sacrament of Holy orders, a man is incorporated into the priesthood of Christ at one of three levels: the episcopate, the priesthood or the diaconate.
