(FKTh 2023-3, p. 179–194)
In order to illustrate the implications of the charism of Opus Dei for the life and ministry of world priests, the main characteristics of this charism are first summarised here. Then the interplay between the charismatic and institutional dimensions of the Church is explained. Then the value of this charism for the life and ministry of the worldly priests is shown, as a gift also for their sanctification and for their priestly service to the ordinary faithful people.
