The Deacon's Bench

“It’s holy orders.  It’s something that’s imprinted on your soul; you die with it. It’s throwing your hat in to a basket when it comes around, or the collection plate, and there it goes. That’s your soul. It just left. When you give yourself up to ordination, you are a cleric and you’re part of the hierarchy.”

 — Deacon Forest Gray, of Salt Lake City, discussing the diaconate.
