Calling of the First Deacons

April 18, 2015

A bit self-serving, but from today’s first reading I highlight the calling of the first deacons of the Church:

So the Twelve called together the community of the disciples and said,
β€œIt is not right for us to neglect the word of God to serve at table.
Brothers, select from among you seven reputable men,
filled with the Spirit and wisdom,
whom we shall appoint to this task,
whereas we shall devote ourselves to prayer
and to the ministry of the word.” (Acts 6:1-7)

Not sure about the “reputable” and “filled with…wisdom” but I am doing the best I can πŸ™‚
