M. Therese Lysaught, Ph.D., Theologian
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.
