Chiesa: [Diaconi]

1 Timoteo 3:1-13
[1] E` degno di fede quanto vi dico: se uno aspira all`episcopato, desidera un nobile lavoro.[2] Ma bisogna che il vescovo sia irreprensibile, non sposato che una sola volta, sobrio, prudente, dignitoso, ospitale, capace di insegnare,[3] non dedito al vino, non violento ma benevolo, non litigioso, non attaccato al denaro.[4] Sappia dirigere bene la propria famiglia e abbia figli sottomessi con ogni dignità,[5] perché se uno non sa dirigere la propria famiglia, come potrà aver cura della Chiesa di Dio?[6] Inoltre non sia un neofita, perché non gli accada di montare in superbia e di cadere nella stessa condanna del diavolo.[7] E` necessario che egli goda buona reputazione presso quelli di fuori, per non cadere in discredito e in qualche laccio del diavolo.[8] Allo stesso modo i diaconi siano dignitosi, non doppi nel parlare, non dediti al molto vino né avidi di guadagno disonesto,[9] e conservino il mistero della fede in una coscienza pura.[10] Perciò siano prima sottoposti a una prova e poi, se trovati irreprensibili, siano ammessi al loro servizio.[11] Allo stesso modo le donne siano dignitose, non pettegole, sobrie, fedeli in tutto.[12] I diaconi non siano sposati che una sola volta, sappiano dirigere bene i propri figli e le proprie famiglie.[13] Coloro infatti che avranno ben servito, si acquisteranno un grado onorifico e una grande sicurezza nella fede in Cristo Gesù.

Atti 6:1-7
[1] At that time, as the number of disciples continued to grow, the Hellenists complained against the Hebrews because their widows were being neglected in the daily distribution.[2] So the Twelve called together the community of the disciples and said, "It is not right for us to neglect the word of God to serve at table.[3] Brothers, select from among you seven reputable men, filled with the Spirit and wisdom, whom we shall appoint to this task,[4] whereas we shall devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word."[5] The proposal was acceptable to the whole community, so they chose Stephen, a man filled with faith and the holy Spirit, also Philip, Prochorus, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicholas of Antioch, a convert to Judaism.[6] They presented these men to the apostles who prayed and laid hands on them.[7] The word of God continued to spread, and the number of the disciples in Jerusalem increased greatly; even a large group of priests were becoming obedient to the faith.

[1] This saying is trustworthy: whoever aspires to the office of bishop desires a noble task.[2] Therefore, a bishop must be irreproachable, married only once, temperate, self-controlled, decent, hospitable, able to teach,[3] not a drunkard, not aggressive, but gentle, not contentious, not a lover of money.[4] He must manage his own household well, keeping his children under control with perfect dignity;[5] for if a man does not know how to manage his own household, how can he take care of the church of God?[6] He should not be a recent convert, so that he may not become conceited and thus incur the devil's punishment.[7] He must also have a good reputation among outsiders, so that he may not fall into disgrace, the devil's trap.
