Day #22: Lumen Gentium 10

Today we have a shorter reading from the Dogmatic Constitution on the Church.  But it is no less important.  Paragraph 10 discusses the priesthood of all believers which, differs from the ministerial priesthood “in essence and not only in degree”, but nonetheless shares things in common and is an important part of the Church’s identity as the “People of God.”

Here are the Scripture citations:

100 Cf. Heb. 5:1-5.

101 Cf Rev. 6:1; cf. 5:9-10

102 Cf. 1 Pt.2:4-10.

103 Cf. Acts 2:42-47.

104 Cf. Rom. 12:1.

105 Cf 1 Pt. 3:15

And the footnotes:
