There Has Never Been a "Female Diaconate" - Cardinal Müller

Cardinal Gerhard Müller has stressed that there has never been an ordained female diaconate in the Church.

He pointed out to (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 He came to the conclusion that proponents of a female diaconate “bend individual historical documents until they fit.”

God bless you for telling the truth
While we're on the subject can anyone tell me the Church's purpose for a male permanent diaconate?
