How Are We Priests, Prophets, and Kings?
What is the meaning of the baptismal gifts of priest, prophet, and king?
The baptized serve as priests through their sacrificial efforts to bring people to God. They serve as prophets through their witness to the truth in word and deed. And they serve as kings in their efforts to lead others—again through word and deed—to use their talents to advance the Kingdom of God (see CCC 1241).
