Title: SACRAMENT OF SERVICE: UNDERSTANDING DIACONAL SPIRITUALITY, THE
Rev. William T. Donovan sums up what he bvelieves the diaconate is when he writes "The diaconate is the churche's pre-eminent sign of the basic mission of all believers to serve others. Deacons give sacramental witness to what makes us fundamentally human: an other-centered responsibility for those in need. This is the source of our holiness; our trnsendence and our spiritual life. Diaconal spirituality is formed and basedc on this life of service, and deacons need to become more reflective upon their diakonia as the foundation of prayer, ministry and liturgy. The relationship of the deacons founded upon service is the church, in the family and in the secular world are the focus of spiritual growth and belonging to Christ. "
