Pope Francis writes prologue for new book on the diaconate





This is something remarkable: a new book on the diaconate, with a prologue by Pope Francis.


The book is not yet available in English, but has been translated from Italian into Spanish—and Deacon John Donaghy (the only permanent deacon in the Diocese of Santa Rosa de Copán, Honduras!) graciously offered to translate it for my readers.  It’s published below.  To Deacon John, I can only offer a humble and heartfelt “Gracias!”  I’m sure I speak for a lot of deacons when I say we look forward to reading the full text of this important book in English.

Fr Harry is currently the chaplain to Warwick University and Parish Priest of St Joseph the Worker, Coventry. He will retain these responsibilities alongside his new

work in support of the Permanent Diaconate in the Archdiocese.
