he is 12 years of age or older. Some of a deacon’s responsibilities are to pass the sacrament

and collect fast offerings from the members.

Why is a twelve year old boy given a position of authority over a grown woman?  Additionally, deacons must have a clear understanding of the faith that must have already been proven.  What twelve year old qualifies for that?
