Min­istry di­vi­sions

Sir, I would have to bow to Alan Bart­ley’s su­pe­rior his­tor­i­cal knowl­edge (14 March) but what he states rather begs the ques­tion. If there is no dif­fer­ence or distinc­tion be­tween Priest and Bishop, why is it then, when a man is ap­pointed as a Bishop, is it nec­es­sary to raise and or­dain that per­son to the Epis­co­pate by prayer and the lay­ing on of hands?

You can­not have it both ways.

Fr Michael Galloway,
