Ordination is a ritual in which a particular role is conferred on a person. The most common form is ordination to the priesthood. Other forms of ordination are to the diaconate (ordination of a deacon) or to the episcopate (ordination of a bishop). The sign on the left is that of ordination to the priesthood.
