Bishop Tagle mentioned in his homily that the diaconate is a “humble and beautiful ministry.” He referred to the deacon as “servant of another servant” since he helps in the ministry of the bishop. He also highlighted that the diaconate is a “ministry at the threshold.”
The door of the Church is the entrance to the place of worship and the entrance to the world – the deacon stands there. He brings the works of creation to the altar of love and self-giving. In this way, the Church assumes the joys and pains of the world and gladly leads them to the reign of God.
