 Our Description

What is a deacon? What does a deacon do? Monsignor Edward Buelt answers these questions and covers all the major themes of the diaconate through an engaging conversation with the Scriptures, the Eucharistic liturgy, and church teaching on the diaconate. Buelt highlights the meaning of the diaconate through insightful and moving reflections on the Scriptures and proposes practical lessons for a deacons ministry at Mass. A New Friendship speaks to an audience of bishops, priests, deacons, deacons wives, and candidates in formation. Inspiring and enriching, this is must reading for anyone interested in the diaconate and in diaconal ministry.

Foreword by Archbishop Charles J. Chaput
