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.
