This event is considered the institution of the Eucharist, where Catholics believe that the bread and wine are transformed into the actual body and blood of Christ.

The bishop is responsible for overseeing the spiritual and administrative affairs of the diocese, including the supervision of priests and deacons. The role of a bishop is considered to be of higher authority and responsibility compared to a priest or deacon. A cardinal, on the other hand, is a high-ranking member of the Catholic Church who is appointed by the Pope and is not necessarily the head of a diocese.
