I know we have a few deacons on this forum. Those who are married deacons, did you feel the vocational calling to the Deaconate after you were married? Before marriage? During dating? Obviously once you are ordained you can’t be married unless you were already married so the marriage must come first. So did you feel a call but put it on hold to be married or did the calling come after marriage?
If we have non-married permanent Deacons, how did you feel you were called to the Deaconate as opposed to the priesthood?
Thank you very much for any answers people, hopefully Deacons may have!
