“Through the Holy Spirit who has been given to them, bishops are the successors of the apostles by divine institution; they are constituted pastors within the church so that they are teachers of doctrine, priests of sacred worship and ministers of governance. Bishops are called diocesan when the care of a diocese has been entrusted to them . . . .”
