Fr. Gonzalo Torres-Acosta, OFM
November 16, 2021

La ordenación de mujeres para el diaconado no es solo una necesidad urgente de la Iglesia para responder a la gran escasez de vocaciones a la vida consagrada, sino también, y más importantemente, una cuestión de Justica y una verdadera edificación del Reino de Dios, donde reconozcamos and afirmemos, como el Cuerpo de Cristo, la IGUALDAD, la dignidad y los dones que mujeres y hombres hemos recibido de nuestro Creador.

Hay muchas mujeres preparadas, fieles discípulas de Jesucristo, excelentes predicadoras del Evangelio, cuyos dones no se reconocen, no se respetan, no se valoran. La Iglesia se enriquecería mucho teniendo mujeres sirviendo en el ministerio del Diaconado.

Fr. Gonzalo de Jesus Torres-Acosta, OFM, is the Parochial Vicar Immaculate Conception Church in the Diocese of Raleigh, North Carolina

“Women are created in the image and likeness of God. Their wisdom, experience, emotional constitution are critical to leading a parish, diocese, any ministry.”

Women need to share their spiritual gifts with others as deacons, serving those who are currently unserved, reaching towards the fullness of the expression of our faith.

Many women I know are competent Catholic ministers, discern a call, and deserve to be empowered by our institution and fully recognized in our communities. It would dignify our Church to recognize this reality.
