CWN Editor's Note: The prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) has said that his office will not advise Pope Francis on the question of whether or not women could be ordained as deacons. Archbishop (soon to be Cardinal) Luis Ladaria explained that the Pope asked the CDF to research the more specific question of the role played by women who were known as deacons in the early Church.
