0 The Message -- for Catholics of Southwestern Indiana August 5,' New Orleans diaconate meeting sets stage for world gathe ' By FLORENCE L. HERMAN Catholic News Service NEW ORLEANS (CNS) -- The Vatican Congregation for the Clergy's plenary session next year on the permanent di- aconate is being enthusiasti- cally anticipated by the world's deacons, said the congrega- tion's secretary at a gathering in New Orleans July 20-23. Archbishop Crescenzio Sepe spoke to the first-of-its-kind meeting of permanent deacons since the order was restored after the Second Vatican Council. In preparation for next year's plenary session, the world's bishops were sent a questionnaire asking for spe- cific information about the per- manent diaconate in their dio- ceses, he said. About 1,300 replies had been received, which, Archbishop Sepe joked, "is the first time a questionnaire from the Holy See received such a response." But, he added on a serious note, the response illustrates the interest in the diaconate. The information will be pub- lished eventually as a docu- ment that "will be applied uni- versally" for the good of the diaconate, he said. Archbishop Sepe said the Oc- tober 1995 plenary session is a logical follow-up to the 1990 world Synod of Bishops on priestly formation. Vatican II focused a great deal on bishops and the laity but said little about priests and deacons, he said. Since then the 1990 synod, an apos- tolic exhortation and the publi- cation of a "Directory for the Ministry and Life of Priests" have addressed priests' needs. He predicted the plenary ses- sion would serve a similar pur- pose in expanding on the role and concerns of deacons. Another speaker, Auxiliary Bishop Curtis J. Guillory of Galve- ston-Houston, urged deacons to reread their rite of ordination. "It is rich and inspiring," he said. "Don't lose sight of your ministry or you will wander around spiritually dry." Being effective in the world means deacons have to be deeply rooted spiritually, Bishop Guillory said. "Evil forces of the marketplace can cut him from his spiritual roots." He said a quick fix, or what he calls "microwave spiritual- ity" where "you say a quick prayer and hope everything will be OK," won't work. He en- couraged the deacons to take the time, energy and re- flection necessary to develop spiritually. "It's not just reading, attend- ing Mass," he said. "It comes from wrestling with the word of God day in and day out. It comes from listening to God in the marketplace It comes from the courage to respond to the Word of God." "Spirituality comes over a long period of time," Bishop Guillory said. "But you need this when the strains and stress of ministry come about. Without a deep-rooted spiritu- ality you will be racked apart. You will not have an answer or the courage to take a stand." He urged them to seek out places and ministries beyond their parishes where they can help their diocese and the uni- versal church, particularly in offering a multicultural con- nection to the church. "Deacons and their wives have the opportunity to impact the multicultural church be- cause of their presence in the marketplace and because of the activity that revolves around families," he said. The conference, which drew about 850 deacons and their wives from the United States, Europe and Australia, was co- sponsored by the U.S. bishops' Committee on the Permanent Diaconate as a result of the deacons' initiative. Other sponsors were the Na- tional Association of Permanent Diaconate Directors, the Native American Deacons Association, the National Association of Dea- con Organizations, the National Association of African-American Catholic Deacons, the National Diaconal Institute for Continu- ing Education and the National Association of Hispanic Deacons. Several other members of the bishops' committee spoke on subjects such as pastoral ministry and preaching in a multicultural society. Work- shops were held on family life issues; the rights and obliga- tions of deacons; and pastoral skills and types of ministries. One session for wives with members of the bishops' com- mittee raised the possibility of a separate organization of dea- cons' wives. Like the various tions for deacons, would have to develop women's initiative, Dale J. Melczek, the bishops' diaconate tee and apostolic of the Dic Bishop Melczek pope's visit with deacons ing his 1987 U.S. the time the d ceived the value in me with deacons from country to share ences and support: He added that the committee has a mandate ! supportive of the me their wives and " t "and their minis ry, value in having thel leans gathering present for th Miller & Colonial Supports the : Knights of ColumbUS MEMBERS Bernie Miller.
