Were the Redeemer to descend into a church, and sit in a confessional to administer the Sacrament of Penance, and a priest to sit in another confessional, Jesus would say over each penitent, " Ego te absolvo, " the priest would likewise say over each of his penitents, " Ego te absolvo, " and the penitents of each would be equally absolved. Duties and Dignities of the Priest, Alphonsus Liguori. 1927 A priest at the altar performs the office of Christ. When, says St. Chrysostom, you have seen a priest offering sacrifice, consider that the hand of Christ is invisibly extended. The priest holds the place of the Savior Himself, when, by saying " Ego te absolvo," he absolves from sin. This great power, which Jesus Christ has received from His eternal Father, He has communicated to His priests.ibid.
