Cardinal Gerhard Müller has stressed that there has never been an ordained female diaconate in the Church.
He pointed out to LifeSiteNews.com (May 9) that female "deacons" received a blessing that Müller compares [in an unfortunate way] to minor orders.
Müller stated that he has reviewed all the sources on the topic. He came to the conclusion that proponents of a female diaconate “bend individual historical documents until they fit.”
