The Meaning of Leadership

“I have come to conclude that, even as a bishop, I am called to be a simple, humble servant for my people. I pray with and for them. I defend them and speak up for them; I confront their enemies; I search for those who have been dragged away at night; I listen to their worries and try to help them hope.” — Bishop Oscar Romero

Although a bishop uttered these words, they describe the leadership to which a deacon is called. We must be on the side of the poor and oppressed. The power of the love of God must be the driving force of our lives and our vocation.
