Restore the minor orders!

This is a problem. There are good reasons for many deacons to work in the world, especially if they require high-paying jobs to pay off student loans (like doctors and lawyers). But the norm ought to be for deacons to be full-time church staff. Even with the doctors and lawyers, they should have some sort of advantage in the hiring process at Catholic hospitals, for example. Seminaries should aggressively recruit devout Catholic men who are accountants and managers for ordination to the diaconate. (My opinion only there.)

For the secretary work, I believe the Clerical Oblates of the Institute of Christ the King has things like word processing as part of the brothers' training. That's a model I could get behind, and see implemented for the Church at large.
