The Lord has sworn
and will not change his mind:
"You are a priest forever,
in the order of Melchizedek."
-Psalm 110:4, NIV
Holy Orders is the sacrament through which the mission entrusted by Christ to his apostles continues to be exercised in the Church until the end of time: thus it is the sacrament of apostolic ministry. It includes three degrees: episcopate, presbyterate, and diaconate.
-Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1536
