When we look into the past we see how Christ called Stephen, Lawrence, and Francis of Assisi to be deacons, to be men of service for the Gospel. God still calls men into this great task to serve the poor, the widow, and the orphan. To care for the vulnerable in our every day lives.
When we see others respond to our generous Lord, we realize that the Lord can never be out done in his generosity. We come to examine our own lives and how we can serve the least of us in our midst. May the Lord bless our deacons!
