Priests have been given authority by God to carry on the mission of Jesus Christ through His Church -- the Catholic Church.
There are often questions about why there is a priesthood. Why are priests needed instead of a simple preacher or pastor? By whose authority do priests change bread and wine in Jesus' body and blood?
While there is Tradition for this, the priesthood is instituted in Scripture! It is not a made-up construct by the Catholic Church but, rather, given by Jesus Christ.
Listen to this episode of My Lord & My God Tuesday, August 1 at 3:20 p.m. on Siouxland Catholic Radio 88.1 FM and hear where the priesthood is found in Scripture or biblical teaching.
