Homily given at the 11:30 a.m. Mass on Sunday, May 18, 2014, the Fifth Sunday of Easter, by Dcn. David Fons, newly ordained Transitional Deacon for the Diocese of Lansing. Dcn. David reflects on the call of the first deacons, recorded in today's reading from the Acts of the Apostles, and the call on all of us to live as disciples of Jesus in service to His Kingdom. The second reading and the Gospel help us understand how to do that.
Key words: Easter, diaconate, discipleship, service, conversion, witness
