You have spoken often of Priests. Do you regard their ordination as a Sacrament?

The Catholic Answers

Among the seven Sacraments is that of Holy Orders. Its institution by Christ, its visible rite, and the fact that it gives grace are all clearly shown in Scripture. Thus St. Paul says that Christ “gave Apostles, Evangelists, Pastors, etc., for the work of the ministry.” Eph. IV., 12. Ordaining by the imposition of hands is often mentioned, and Timothy was told not to neglect the grace of God “which is in thee by the imposition of hands.” I. Tim. IV., 14. Rightly ordained Priests alone have the right to teach the Gospel authoritatively and carry on its sacred ministry.
