Priestly Ordination

Today I attended the ordination of 3 men to the priesthood. When the incensing took place, the Bishop incensed the altar, the crucifix, the priests, the deacons and then those in attendance. The incensing, one after the other, indicates that we are all involved in the priestly function of witnessing to Christ and making Him present. We are all His brothers and sisters and need to bear a resemblance to Him and make our relationship to Him known. The ordained priests are not the only ones commissioned to spread the Gospel. We are all commissioned to do the same, by our words and faith and example.
