"Through the ordained ministry, especially that of bishops and priests, the presence of Christ as head of the Church is made visible in the midst of the community of believers. In the beautiful expression of St. Ignatius of Antioch, the bishop is typos tou Patros: he is like the living image of God the Father."

"Christ proposes the evangelical counsels,

in their great variety, to every disciple.

The perfection of charity, to which all the faithful

are called, entails for those who freely follow the call to consecrated life the obligation of practicing

chastity in celibacy for the sake of the Kingdom,

poverty and obedience. 

It is the profession of these counsels, within a

permanent state of life recognized by the Church,

that characterizes the life consecrated to God.

The state of consecrated life is thus one way of

experiencing a "more intimate" consecration, rooted in Baptism and dedicated totally to God. 

In the consecrated life, Christ's faithful,

moved by the Holy Spirit,

propose to follow Christ more nearly,

to give themselves to God who is loved above all and, pursuing the perfection of charity in the service

of the Kingdom, to signify and proclaim in the Church

the glory of the world to come."

Catechism of the Catholic Church, p. 915-916
