Are Bishops, Priests, and Deacons Automatically Holy?

Are bishops, priests, and deacons automatically holy?

No. They are human beings, and therefore are subject to the same temptations and problems as the rest of us.
There are well-known cases of ordained people who have not been faithful to their ministry and who have not been a good example to the community.
They do, however, have a call to live a radical commitment to Christ and to the service of the community in order to help people transform their lives according to the plan of God.
The ordained are at the service of the people of God so that the people of God may be at the service of the world, building together the reign of God.

The ordained person counts on the grace of God, but his life, like the life of all people, is subject to tensions and difficulties and limitations.
It is the role of the Christian community to support, encourage, and pray for its ordained ministers.
Please pray for my family and my ministry..... Each day we try to live a joyful life while fighting evil and spreading the good news of Jesus Christ, Salvation, and eternal life.
