In this masterful work, Jean Galot, S.J., explains how the Jewish priesthood, the perfect priestly ministry of Jesus, and the role of the Twelve help us understand the ministerial priesthood. He considers how the "priesthood of the faithful" and the ministerial priesthood relate top each other, and how the latter is, by God's design necessary for the former. Fr. Galot examines the priest's role as minister of sacrifice and the sacraments, prophet of the Word, and leader of the Church. This ministry is itself a sharing in Jesus' role as Shepherd. Jean Galot, S.J. is a Professor of Theology at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome. 274 pages.
