Resolved: The Church Should Ordain Women as Permanent Deacons

Resolved: The Church Should Ordain Women as Permanent Deacons January 26, 2012

Resolved:  the Church should return to the practice of the patristic period and ordain women to the permanent diaconate.

Please discuss.

Before responding, you may want to read the interview with Phyllis Zagano at U.S. Catholic and her response to what she felt were the many factually incorrect comments posted to that article.

Also, since it will probably be referred to by someone, here is a link to Ordinatio Sacerdotalis, Pope John Paul II’s letter on the ordination of women to the priesthood.  (For what its worth, I searched the document and “deacon” and “diaconate” do not appear in the text:  it is solely concerned with priestly ordination.)
