If you attend a the ordination of a priest, but you don’t actually know him or his family, are you crashing the party? Editor Matt Gambino and producer Gina Christian put the question to Father Dennis Gill, director of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia’s Office for Divine Worship and rector of the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul. As Philadelphia prepares to welcome the ordination of six new priests at 10 a.m. Saturday, May 19 at the cathedral — and everyone is invited — Father Gill explains the profound relationship between Christ, his people, and his priests. Holiness in a common priesthood of all the baptized is a call shared by all of the faithful, one made possible through the person and work of Christ.
