There is only one priesthood and
that is the Eternal High Priesthood of Christ. All other priesthood is a
sharing in the priesthood of Christ. All other priesthood is a sharing in the
priesthood of Christ. "Now Christ has come, as high priest of all the
blessings which were to come...He has entered the sanctuary once and for
all...having won an eternal redemption." (Hebrew 9:11)
"He became for all who obey
him the source of eternal salvation, and was acclaimed by God with the title of
high priest, for ever of the order of Melchizedek...the hope that brings us
close to God." (Hebrews 5:9,10; 7:17,19b).
The primary role of a priest is to
mediate between God and his creation - to reveal God to the world and draw the
world to God. In his lifetime Jesus did this in many and varied ways, above
all, and most mysteriously, in his death and resurrection.
"Christ entered heaven itself, so that he now appears in the presence of
God on our behalf." (Hebrews 9:24)
In the Eucharist he left us with a
powerful means of sharing in, and continuing, his priestly activity in the
heart of creation.
Christ is the supreme high priest
but we, the 'People of God' are all sharers in that priesthood. Listen to Peter
talking to an ordinary group of Christians,
"Set yourselves close to him
so that you, too, may be living stones making a spiritual house as a holy
priesthood to offer spiritual sacrifices..."(1 Peter 2:5)
Then, even more forcefully,
"You are a chosen race, a kingdom of priests, a holy nation, a people to
be a personal possession, to sing the praises of God, who call you out of
darkness into his wonderful light." (1 Peter 2:9)
