What it means for me to be a deacon

Today is my 6th anniversary of ordination as a deacon. I feel it is important for me to keep this date in mind, because I don't believe my ordination as a priest erased by ordination as a deacon — I'm still stamped with the grace of diaconate in my soul. In fact, I find that a lot of the tasks I do from day to day are actually much more diaconal tasks than presbyteral ones.
