The Permanent Diaconate - A Reading List

The Permanent Diaconate - A Reading List

And so the journey begins. I am looking to do some reading on the Diaconate, or really all aspects on being a married deacon. I reached out on facebook, twitter and Google+ looking for recommended reads. Here is the list I have so far but would love more ideas. So please add them in the comments or drop me a line.

Yes this is research but also a sort of pre-discernment reading.

The Deacon Reader
James Keating
Paulist Press
ISBN 9780809143894

101 Questions & Answers on Deacons
William T. Ditewig
Paulist Press
ISBN 9780809142651

A Deacon's Retreat
James Keating
Paulist Press
ISBN 9780809146444

The Heart of the Diaconate: 
Communion with the Servant Mysteries of Christ
James Keating
Paulist Press
ISBN 9780809149179

This final one on my starting list might be hard to track down but I am trying to find it. It is mentioned in the second essay in The Deacon Reader the specific essay is The Contemporary Renewal of the Diaconate by Dcn. William T. Ditewig, PhD. 

Married Men As Ordained Deacons
Wilhelm Schamoni
Otto Eisner (Translator)
1st Edition 1955

2nd Edition 1962

And I will add more as I get recommendations or these books lead me into further readings.
