Culhane said there are two types of Catholic deacons. A "transitioning deacon" is the last position before ordination as a priest, Culhane said. Kane was a "permanent deacon, meaning he went through years of study but did not take the final steps to priesthood."
The two types of deacons are very different. One type of deacon chooses not to pursue priest hood and chooses to stay a deacon. Some people might do this because they have a family of their own and want to be with them as much as possible. The reason they do this is because being a religious icon could be a 24 hour job. Sick people calling constantly for healing or dying people wanting a final blessing or repent their sins before they go see God. The other type of deacon chooses to pursue priest hood because he might a younger deacon that has not family of his (no children or wife) and plans to stay this way for life. He wants to be a messenger and connector for God for his life. This job is equally or more demanding the a permanent deacon because you are training to be a priest and a performer of more sacraments.
"We're trying to stay away from a win-loss," said Winters. "I'm going to your parish. I lost. You won because you got to keep your building. Somehow we've got to work through all that."
Being a Catholic is not a win-loss situation it should be a win-win because in God's eyes no matter what if you believe and stand by your beliefs you are a winner. If you believe that people in the same state of city should be the same religion you should stand by that and present your case. Presenting your case means you say why people should be the same religio because if you just say things about your religion people aren't going to want to be that religion and then you will fall and forget your beliefs. On the other hand if you stand up for your beliefs and and present facts and maybe even historical figures that are the same religion you can persuade people to be the same reigion as you. Just believe in yourself and faith.
