M. Therese Lysaught, Ph.D., Theologian
Theologian, Doctor of Philosophy - Loyola University Chicago and the Pontifical Academy for Life (Chicago, IL/Madison, WI)
September 20, 2022

"The Second Vatican Council 'threw open the windows of the Church and let the fresh air of the Spirit blow through.' That same Spirit has long called, gifted, and empowered women to minister among and lead God’s people. It is time for the Church to heed the Spirit’s voice, recognizing women’s call to the diaconate and allow the Spirit to restore and renew the Body of Christ so that it may fully live into its identity of missionary discipleship.

For women to serve as deacons in my parish and apostolate would justly recognize the leadership so many women already provide. It would reduce the ministerial burden on our priests. It would capitalize on the theological education and expertise of an increasing number of Catholic women. And it would powerfully evangelize our youth by affirming the Spirit’s call to women and by bringing fresh voices and perspectives to liturgical preaching."

Dr. Lysaught is a Theologian, a Corresponding Member at The Pontifical Academy for Life, and a professor at Loyola University Chicago.

“Learning about the history of women in the diaconate gave context to efforts to enable women’s participation in the diaconate today, and it was powerful to celebrate St. Phoebe and uplift the ministry of women in our own community.”
