3 Wonders of Christ’s Priesthood

At Casa Santa Marta, Francis Also Warns of ‘Unforgivable Blasphemy’



There are three stages of the priesthood of Christ: He offers Himself; He intercedes for us; He will return to bring us to the Father.

According to Vatican Radio, Pope Francis pointed this out to faithful during his daily morning Mass at Casa Santa Marta, as he reflected on the day’s reading from the Letter of Hebrews, which speaks about Christ as the Mediator of the Covenant that God has made with human beings.

Speaking on these stages of His priesthood, the Jesuit Pope noted that the first is the redemption.
While the priests of the Old Covenant had to offer sacrifices every year, “Christ offered Himself, once for all, for the forgiveness of sins.”
