Description Technical Specs More Info
Written through the eyes of a deacon, this study of the permanent diaconate discerns who deacons are in relation to the Church and the service that flows from their interior character—they are ordained ministers, preachers of the Word, and models of Christ. As deacons move along the path of charity, they herald the Good News of Jesus Christ in the world.

Deacons are called to minister to the community of believers, in service to Christ, their bishop, the poor, and the Body of Christ. This narrative takes the reader through Pope Francis’s vision for the permanent diaconate. This story reviews the renewal of the permanent diaconate and significant magisterial teachings on the office of the diaconate. It looks at Pope Francis’s words as bishop of Buenos Aires and his papal teachings, including his Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium.

This beautiful narrative draws the reader into the sacred ministry of the diaconate and will inspire deacons and all those drawn to the service of charity in the Church.

Reviewer: Anonymous Person from NY United States  
Our Holy Father’s silence on the deaconate except to potentially change it, prompted the purchase but it was disappointing to see that this is not a lesson on the teachings of Francis but an interpretation of what he might teach based on some writings and speeches of Bergoglio.

Reviewer: Cindy Bremer from La Porte , TX United States  
I purchased this book as an anniversary present for my husband who is currently in diaconate formation.  If it is God's will, he will be ordained in 2023.  I hope this helps him with his personal discernment - we all struggle with our worthiness to serve.

I gave this book to the deacon at my parish. He seems to enjoy the book.
