Day #55: Lumen Gentium 48

In today’s reading from the Dogmatic Constitution on the Church, we begin Chapter VII on “The Eschatological Nature of the Pilgrim Church and Its Union with the Church in Heaven.”  We cannot talk of the Church without looking at the prefection of the Church in heaven.

Today’s reading also gives us the great image of the Church as “the universal sacrament of salvation”.
