“I find in Discerning Deacons a genuine understanding of and commitment to the process of discernment. The Second Vatican Council is just one modern example of what happens when the Church, as the whole people of God, comes together to discern the movement of the Spirit among us. The result is what Pope Francis terms ‘overflow.’ When we approach important and sometimes difficult questions in this spirit, it sheds light on the entire mystery of the Church and opens to us unexpected pathways. I would encourage all who love the Church to engage in this process.”

Fr. Joe Doran is the pastor of St. Pius V Catholic Community in Pasadena, Texas.

Organization
“Our St. Phoebe Day celebration was a Catholic mass at its best—coming together, unified at the Eucharistic table, getting nourished through meaningful ritual, prayerful and relevant songs, a challenging message on synodality from scripture, and engaging and honest testimonies from two women in our community. St. Joan of Arc parish today did what Jesus did years ago—fed souls and gave people hope.”

“Together, we are grateful that the ministry and example of St. Phoebe enlivens our community to participate in exploring the unique gifts of women in our faith community. Here at Cranaleith, we feel strongly about creating space for all those seeking wholeness and transformation for themselves, their communities and society. This retreat was an opportunity for us to do just that.”

“The icon of St. Phoebe is still present in our Chapel today, where we are able to remember her witness and ask her to intercede on our behalf.”
