Jesuits, The Ministerial Priesthood, and Eucharistic Concelebration
Post-conciliar developments on the meaning of the ministerial priesthood and its relationship to the priesthood of all the baptized make concelebration less than ideal. The
norms of the church often do not keep pace with such developments. Furthermore, the church needs to re-examine the theology behind other practices, such as the offering of Mass intentions, that encourage concelebration.
