The sacrament of holy orders is about answering a call from God, and about continuing the uninterrupted succession the ministry of the original Twelve Apostles until the end of all time.

The term “holy orders” has its roots in ancient Rome, where an “order” referred to an “established civil body, especially a governing body.” (1537) In the Catholic Church, holy orders “confers a gift of the Holy Spirit that permits the exercise of a ‘sacred power,’ which can come only from Christ himself through his Church.” So the gift of the Spirit received during ordination doesn’t come from the community or even the Church but from Christ through the Church. (1538)
