Interview with a Deacon

While scanning the National Catholic Reporter website, I came across an interview by Mercy Sister Camille D'Arienzo of Don Zirkel, who, in his eighties, was once arrested for protesting against the Iraq War in a New York mall.  He was walking around the mall, wearing a protest t-shirt.

He and his late wife have been peace activists for many years.  He had worked for a Catholic diocesan newspaper, and was an ordained permanent deacon.  The interview reveals a man of service to his Church and his community.  And it is nice to know that there are deacons who are, shall we say, "left of center."  The interview can be found here.
