Prologue   A[1]   A[2]   A[3]   A[4]   A[5]  

We must next consider me effect of this sacrament. Under this head there are five points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether sanctifying grace is conferred in the sacrament of Order?

A[2] Whether a character is imprinted in connection with all the Orders?

A[3] Whether the character of Order presupposes of necessity the character of Baptism?

A[4] Whether it presupposes of necessity the character of Confirmation?

A[5] Whether the character of one Order presupposes of necessity the character of another Order?
