THE SPIRIT IS AMONG US
The Permanent Diaconate
By Dr Siphiwe F Mkhize
"This book aims to give the reader an overview of the theological and pastoral nature of the diaconate and thus to clarify the fundamental identity of the deacon, for those who are discerning such a call as aspirants and those who are already candidates for the office. In so doing, it assists students for the diaconate in grasping the theological, pastoral, spiritual, sacramental and sociological aspects present in this vocation, and thus it intends to foster the intellectual formation and deacon students. It is important for everyone engaging in this ministry to acquire a deep understanding of the identity of diaconal ministry. Fidelity to one’s vocation depends upon a clear knowledge of the nature of one’s call. Such clear knowledge helps ensure a firm foundation for a lifelong commitment to the diaconate.”
