These in their turn have legitimately handed on to different individuals in the church various degrees of participation in this ministry. Thus the divinely established ecclesiastical ministry is exercised on different levels by those who from antiquity have been called bishops, priests and deacons" (Vatican Council II, Constitution on the Church).這些被認為是神聖來源: “基督,他父親被認可和融入世界,也通過他的使徒,使他們的繼任者,主教, partakers他的奉獻和他的使命。這些在其反過來又交給合法對不同的人在教堂裡不同程度的參與這一部。因此,神設立教會部行使不同層次的人誰從古代被稱為主教,司鐸和執事“ (梵蒂岡理事會二,憲法對教會) 。 Until 1972, when it was abolished, the subdiaconate had been included among the major orders.直到1972年,當時廢除, subdiaconate已列入之間的大訂單。
