The bishop, when anointing the hands of a priest at ordination says
"...That you may sanctify the Christian people and offer sacrifice to God."
The character of orders enables the priest to make people holy and to connect earth with heaven with the Holy Mysteries of the sacraments, especially the offering of the Mass (Christ on the Cross to the eternal Father for the forgiveness of sins and for the love of the Father).
In the presentation of the chalice and the paten the bishop then says
"...and conform your life to the mystery of the Lord's cross."
In other words, be holy yourself. Live the holiness, the holy sacrifice, of Christ. May the offering of holy things spur you to personal holiness, that you too may attain the grandeur of Christ's communion with the Father.
