Day #44: Lumen Gentium 33-34

Today’s passage from the Dogmatic Constitution on the Church continues our reflection by looking at some of the ways the laity participate in the life of the Church, in particular with regards to their participation in Christ’s priestly office.

Here are the Scripture citations:

197 Eph. 4:7.

198 Cf. Phil. 4:3; Rom. 16:3ff.
