And no permanent deaconate program either. I remember reading Deacon Greg Kandra’s Patheos article (N.B., if it’s Patheos, it’s almost certainly garbage) about how vocations in Lincoln really aren’t that great, because they don’t have a permanent deaconate program. What a load of trash!  Whatever the ancient Church’s permanent deaconate may have been, its restoration seems to have mostly been seen merely as an opportunity for married men to “almost be priests.” It seems it is viewed as the benefits of the priesthood without the sacrifice.
