Priest /Councils /
This Decree is focused on the special sacramental consecration which makes the priests participate in the same priesthood in Christ, in whose Person of Head and Pastor they act. The Decree places the ministry and the life of priests in the flowering ecclesiological development described in «Lumen gentium», and, at the same time, to face the peculiar cultural and social characteristics which were echoed in the Counciliar document «Gaudium et spes».
