In Re: What About Deacons?

In regards to my previous post, I wish to present again a post I wrote in 2010 , when now pope-emeritus Benedict exhorted the Scottish bishops to care for their deacons and reinforced the deacon as heralds of the Gospel. Here it is:

In the midst of his homily today in Scotland, Pope Benedict included the following at he addressed the bishops of that country:

“Have a care also for your deacons, whose ministry of service is associated in a particular way with that of the order of bishops. Be a father and a guide in holiness for them, encouraging them to grow in knowledge and wisdom in carrying out the mission of herald to which they have been called.” www.ewtn.com/library/papaldoc/b16ukbella.htm

It is good to be mentioned, especially in relation to the ministry of the bishop, as the Holy Father does. Ours is a ministry of service, but also of herald of the Gospel.

    Hello Deacon Bob,

    Perhaps, as you mentioned one time on this ‘blog,’ you were questioning wether you should write to the Pope and ask about his view of the Deacons. Maybe it is time that you did, it seems like it would give you some peace of mind with regard to the importance of your vocation.

    Peace and all good things
