Day #126: Gaudium Et Spes 41

A blessed Ash Wednesday and start of the Lenten season to you all.

Today’s reading from the Pastoral Constitution on the Church in the Modern World continues our look at the role of the Church in the modern world.

With article 41, the Council begins to lay out some “general principles” in how the interaction between Church and world takes place.  Human beings will always ask the deep questions of life.  And the Church, in light of the revelation She has received from God, is uniquely equipped to answer those questions.

Here are the footnotes:

8. Cf. Rom. 8:14-17.

9. Cf. Matt. 22:39.
