Paragraph 1542

1542. At the ordination of priests, the Church prays:

Lord, holy Father, . . .
when you had appointed high priests to rule your people,
you chose other men next to them in rank and dignity
to be with them and to help them in their task….
you extended the spirit of Moses to seventy wise men….
You shared among the sons of Aaron
the fullness of their father’s power.13
