Ratzinger's Protestant Definition of the Priesthood. The Fraud Perpetrated by this Man for 60 years is Mind-blowing. I Guess if You Only See Externals, You Will Fall for his Neo-Modernism.
A Lutheran "Lord's Supper." Look familiar?
Game: Find the Catholic Priesthood in anything said below by Cardinal Ratzinger in God and the World:
"Well, first of all, the Catholic priest is there in response to the mission of Jesus Christ, in the authoritative pattern of the apostles. So he is not the figure of the priesthood as seen in the general history of religions [as a sacrificer of actual flesh and blood?]. The standard for this class, if we may call it that, derives from the figure of the apostle, as created by Christ. Christ gives him [the "Catholic priest"] the task of proclaiming his Word, proclaiming himself, proclaiming the promise he has given us [this is the fundamental task of the "priest"]. And within the framework of this proclamation [while being a simple proclaimer of the "word"], which is always a task of love, of building up the Body of Christ [but not giving it to the faithful!], of service to the poor [but not a sacramental service], the proclamation of his death, which we call the Eucharist [as did Martin Luther, John Calvin, and Pastor Bob at Mountain View Bible Chapel], and which is a sacrament, is central."
Excuse me Mike Matt, what about the "Glorious reign of Pope Benedict"? I think we need to read.
