Quote for the Day

“Let all here, great and small, be assured of our readiness to serve them according to the Spirit of the Lord.” — Pope John Paul I, 3 Sept 78.

This quote is taken from Papa Luciani’s homily at his installation.  I was there, less than thirty feet from him that day.  He was of course, referring to himself as he was beginning his papacy of 33 days; yet without intending it I am sure, he had something to say to us deacons thirty years later. 

Let us make this our diaconal motto, which we will proclaim by our way of life.
