From the beginning in the Church, God called certain men from the community to be consecrated for preaching the Gospel, administering the sacraments and caring for the needs of the community--some for service as bishops, others as priests and some for service as deacons.
We know what a bishop or a priest does because their ministry is very familiar to every Catholic. It is a different case with deacons...to understand diaconal ministry it is essential to see deacons in the context of the three general areas of service to which they are especially called: the ministry of the Word, ministry of the liturgy, and ministry of charity and justice. Everything a deacon does falls within this framework.
