In recent years there has been a growing theological-pastoral interest
in ministerial service and ministries in the Church, with a particular
emphasis on the diaconal ministry and role that deacons have in the
Church. The Compendium on the Diaconate: A Resource for the Formation,
Ministry, and Life of Permanent Deacons explores how bishops, along with
their helpers, the priests and deacons, have taken up the service of
community, exercising the divinely established ecclesiastical ministry
on different levels. The Church is ministry, service, diaconia, and it
is called to be of service to the many aspects and sectors of the
Church. This volume is a collection of fundamental texts for
understanding the roots of the diaconate, understanding its ministerial
specificity and its potential for development in today's world as well
as the Church's pastoral care.
