Of False And False “Deaconesses”
A Swiss theologian has intervened after the heretical meeting called by Archbishop Zollitsch and has told him what we already knew, but was good to repeat: there can be no deaconesses because a deacon has holy orders, and the Archbishop is confusing the faithful. Again, a couple of considerations are probably in order.
1. Archbishop Zollitsch and his bunch of soutaned prostitutes do want to confuse the faithful. They know perfectly well a “deaconess” in the proper meaning of the word – one able to do all that a deacon can do – is a thing of impossibility, but why should they care? Their aim is simply to appease and encourage the German dissenting Catholics – millions of them, I am afraid – by telling them “German clergy good, Vatican bad!” and in this way keep them from stopping the payment of the Kirchensteuer.
2. There will never be “deaconesses”. But if this were to prove helpful to our heroes to suck it up to the German dissenters, they might well try to introduce “helpers” they would then call “deaconesses”, very probably by way of abuse as happened with the “altar girls” in Paul VI's times, and very probably getting away with it as happened in the same occasion. In this way we would have an army of bitching Zicken insisting to tell the world “I am a Deaconess” and getting extremely angry at every hint they do not have holy orders. After a while, they'd say they think they actually have, and if they haven't it's clearly an injustice. Give it ten years, and some German pew-sitter – and the totality of those never attending – wouldn't even know there's a difference. The priest will, certainly, never mention it.
3. The “female deaconess”, though – assuming she is introduced by way of liturgical abuse – would still only be able to do things like, let me think, undressing women being prepared for baptism? Therefore, whilst our Zicke would still be able to throw some smoke in the eyes of her Protestant Freundinnen, she would be seen as both useless and ridiculous by all those who still care for Catholicism. Still, many of the lukewarm or ill-informed would end up picking up this thing with the wind, that “there are Catholic deaconesses, I have heard someone say”.
Make no mistake, if Zollitsch & Co. think this kind of confusion can be useful to them, they will push it as hard as they can. They will then say they oh so wanted to have “real” “deaconesses”, but alas, it was partout not to be done.
In the meantime, the Pope tells us looking at balance sheets before hiring bad, and company prudence is unjust.
What a fine Papacy we will have.
