Sacerdos versus Presbyter[fontem recensere]

It is better use the word sacerdos or the word presbyter to talk about a minister? E.g. Tu es sacerdos... Thanks. --Abaz 17:27, 26 Septembris 2007 (UTC)[reply]

I think sacerdos is like a priest who does rituals (In the CLC, a sacerdos takes the iecur of a agnus in some sort of pagan ritual). I think that Presbyter is safer when you're talking about a Christian. Harrissimo.
Codex Iuris Canonici [1] et presbyterum et sacerdotem habet. --Alex1011 17:35, 26 Septembris 2007 (UTC)[reply]
Words lists sacerdos as "priest, priestess" (I have only heard priestess outside Christian contexts) and presbyter says that it is priest, with Christian in brackets. Harrissimo.

Primus an secundus?[fontem recensere]

Rectius videtur dicere presbyteratum esse primum sacerdotii gradum, episcopatum autem secundum et summum. Quoad constructionem “munus sanctificandi, id est, populo instructionem faciendum”, quomodo explicatur? Kyrios 07:03, 6 Octobris 2007 (UTC)[reply]
