a clergyman in Christian churches who has the authority to perform or administer various religious rites; one of the Holy Orders
A priest is a religious figure who performs ceremonies, particularly in the Roman Catholic, Anglican, or Orthodox church. During a Catholic baptism, a priest sprinkles holy water on a baby’s head.
Though priests are often thought of as Christian, there are other religions with priests, including some branches of Shintoism and Hinduism. Priests often lead religious services, perform weddings and other religious rites, and in many cases work full time for their churches. Priest comes from the Old English prēost, and it shares a root with Presbyterian, the Greek presbyteros, "an elder."
虽然牧师通常被认为是基督教徒，但其他宗教也有牧师，包括神道教和印度教的一些分支。牧师经常主持宗教仪式、举行婚礼和其他宗教仪式，并且在许多情况下全职为他们的教堂工作。 Priest 来自古英语 prēost，它与希腊语 presbyteros“长老”Presbyterian 共享一个词根。
When the last priest had left, harangued back to Athens after a mere three months, the family had hoped that Father Mike might be promoted.
