Ego Vobiscum sum, sicut qui ministrat
“Do you realize what I have done for you? You call me ‘teacher’ and ‘master,’ and rightly so, for indeed I am. If I, therefore, the master and teacher, have washed your feet, you ought to was on another’s feet. I have given you a model to follow, so that as I have done for you, you should also do.”
Jesus to the Apostles, John 13:12a-1
“Deacons who are ministersof the mysteries of Jesus . . .are not mere servants withfood and drink, but emissaries of God’s Church.”From the letter of St. Ignatiusof Antioch to the Trallians.
