  • Holy Saturday is a clear and reasoned discussion that concludes it is entirely within the Churchs power, authority, and tradition to restore its practice of ordaining women to the diaconate. In this lucid discussion of all the issues attendant to the question, Dr. Zagano argues from theological anthropology, sacramental theology, ecclesiology, historical and ecumenical sources, and contemporary understandings of the permanent diaconate. For the first time, the question of womens ordination to the diaconate is clearly and effectively separated from other issues. Considered on its own in this groundbreaking book, the possibility of ordaining women to the permanent diaconate in the Catholic Church is a response from tradition that would permanently incorporate women into the teaching, sanctifying, and governing roles of the Church. The book is intended for the well-educated reader as well as for the specialist, and promises to be one of the most talked about books of the new year.
