SEG 4-1: The Royal Priesthood of the Laity (2 segments)

The Church has long taught that all baptized Christians share in Christ’s royal priesthood, and that we are “a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s own people,” who should “declare the wonderful deeds of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.” What does that mean for the Laity, especially in this time of crisis? We’ll talk about it with Fr Michael Sweeney.
