new Vatican commission to be set up to study the possibility of women deacons



If there are female deacons will they dress like this?

female religious: “Why not construct an official commission that might study the question?”
Francis:      “What were these female deacons?” 
“Did they have ordination or no?"

“It was a bit obscure”  
“What was the role of the deaconess in that time?”
“Constituting an official commission that might study the question?”  
“I believe yes. It would do good for the church to clarify this point. I am in agreement. I will speak to do something like this.”
“I accept.” 
“It seems useful to me to have a commission that would clarify this well.”
“I like hearing your questions because they make me think.”
“I feel like a goalie, who is standing there waiting for the ball and not knowing where it's going to come from.”


A deacon is “is an ordained minister of the Catholic Church” and the step before one becomes a presbyter.

Francis: “For me, the elaboration of decisions is very important.  Not only the execution, but the elaboration; namely, that women, whether consecrated or lay, are inserted into the process of the discussion.”
Francis: “Because [a] woman looks at life with true eyes.  We men cannot look at it so. The way of seeing problems, of seeing whatever thing is totally … different than men. They have to be complementary. In consultations, it is very important that women be there.”

 The consecrated woman is an icon of the church but a priest isn't.

Francis: “The consecrated woman is an icon of the church, an icon of Mary.  The priest is not an icon of the church, he is not an icon of Mary. He is an icon of the apostles, of the disciples ... but not of the church of Mary.”


The logical conclusion of a committee being set up to study an already settled matter will be female presbyters in the Novus Ordo church one day soon.

Francis: “The hierarchy of the church must speak of you, but first must speak with you.  This is for sure.”
Francis: “You have spoken of newness in the positive sense.  And the church is the majesty in this because it has had to change so, so much in its history.”
Francis: “Every change that you must do... enter into this process of discernment.  This will give you more freedom.”
[...]
Francis: “The Code (Canon Law) is an instrument.  But I insist, never make a change without making a process of discernment.”
