There is 1 question in this category.
To my understanding, the mystery of holy Priesthood is normally conferred in consecutive steps with one normally ordained to the Diaconate first before being ordained a priest. But, what if an Orthodox Bishop were to ordain a person directly as a priest without first ordaining him to the Diaconate, would such a direct ordination be a real ordination? Would that person be a real priest?
