This article reflects on the sacramentality of the priesthood, and, in particular, the sign-value of the person of the priest acting ‘in persona Christi’. Conclusions are drawn regarding the reasons why all priests should embrace ongoing formation, and the need for the ongoing formation of the presbyterium to be considered as a fifth ‘focus’ for ongoing priestly formation, alongside the four foci (personal, intellectual, spiritual, pastoral) identified in Pastores Dabo Vobis.
