The person of the archbishop

 

 

 

« Gift of the Holy Spirit to the Church, the bishop is first and foremost, and like any other Christian, a son and member of the Church... However, because of the fulfillment of the Sacrament of the Orders, the bishop is also, for the faithful, he who is master, sanctifier, and pastor, charged with acting in the name and in the person of Christ. » (Pastor Gregis, no. 10)
