Question of the Day for Thursday, May 2, 2013
Q. What is the difference between an archbishop and a bishop?
A. Here’s a reply from Father Reginald Martin:
The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches: “Holy Orders is the sacrament through which the mission entrusted by Christ to his apostles continues to be exercised in the Church until the end of time: thus it is the sacrament of apostolic ministry. It includes three degrees: episcopate, presbyterate, and diaconate” (No. 1536).
