Hello, I am discussing women deacons on Fr. James Martin’s FB page. Some lady named Phyllis Zagano keeps chiming in! lol Yes, they let me know of her import and WHO she is.
Anyway, she and some of her cohorts have posted all types of information on “women deacons.” However, they have never answered my question or my point:
Deacons today receive Holy Orders. I know that “deacon” means servant. To my knowledge, if any women were “ordained” deacons, it was not with the Sacrament of Holy Orders.
After saying this, I get all the info on how women were ordained “deacon” in the 1100s, in the 1300s, and so forth. Okay…
When I ask them to demonstrate to me when women receiving Holy Orders was revoked or ceased, they have not yet answered me. I know that if women REALLY did receive Holy Orders back then and it was taken away, then there would be proof and a squabble back then. All I am getting is crickets.
So… can someone fill me in on the actual status of women “deacons” way back when? I know that Zagano is trying to pull a fast one.
Thanks- and Merry Christmas!
