Day #23: Lumen Gentium 11

Today’s passage from the Dogmatic Constitution on the Church takes a look at the Sacraments which bring the Church “into operation.”  This paragraph is also the origin of that reference to the family as the “domestic church”.

Here are the Scripture citations:

106 Cf. Jas. 5:14-16

107 Cf. Rom. 8:17; Col. 1:24; 2 Tim. 2:11-12; 1 Pet. 4:13.

108 Cf. Eph. 5:32.

109 Cf. 1 Cor. 7:7.

And the footnotes:
