More Pope Benedict Pictures

This photo show Pope Benedict on his way from the Pope-Mobile to the altar area in Nationals Stadium last thursday. You can clearly see the two deacons leading the way.

The ordination of permenant deacons was revived by Vatican II and Pope Paul VI and Deacons are now numerous in many areas of the world. Some America diocese now have more deacons serving the church than they have presbyters (priests).

You can read the biblical beginnings of the Order of Deacon in Chapter Six of the Book of Acts.
