I’m sure there is much more to say, but amid the hectic schedule of such a busy weekend, I only have time to post a few images from this morning’s Ordination Liturgy. Five of us were ordained deacons (popularly referred to as the “transitional” diaconate, that is those men who will serve the Church as deacons for a period of time before being ordained to the priesthood — but theologically and canonically there is no such thing as a “transitional” or “permanent” deacon. All deacons are deacons… a pet peeve of mine…moving on). Here are a few quick images, perhaps some more to follow.
