Defining the future May 11, 2008
Deacon Ditewig has written a gem - whether you are simply studying about the Diaconate, discerning your own call, active in formation, or already ordained, this is a must read. I am active in a formation program (entering 5th year) and it solidified my sense of what I am pursuing better than anything else has done. It contains a wonderful history of deacons and what this order has meant to the Catholic Church throughout its history but it has so much more. It paints the big picture of what a Deacon really is (or should be) and that being a Deacon is about being a servant to all. Thank you Deacon Ditewig - your book was extremely helpful!
