A Deacon’s Reflection
The Catholic Permanent Deacon, restored by Vatican II, has not yet been clearly defined and comprehensively understood by the Church throughout her various structures. This book is a simple contribution to a universal process of defining and understanding who the Catholic Permanent Deacon is – his identity, role and relationship – and what this means for the Church moving forward. This book is both helpful and challenging, as it should be.
Many books have been written on the subject of the Catholic Permanent Deacon, but this is the first book to be written by a Permanent Deacon from Africa on this subject. While not professing to be an expert, he brings his lived faith experience combined with a cultivated knowledge of his ministry and profound spiritual insights to a work that sheds much needed light on a clerical Order that remains mysterious to and poorly understood by many in the Catholic Church.
A must-read for any Catholics who want to better understand the Catholic Permanent Deacon, especially if they have such deacons in their parish.
