Day #194: Dignitatis Humanae 14

Today we continue on in the Declaration on Religious Freedom.

Lest anyone misunderstand religious freedom as implying that the Church endorses a “live and let live” philosophy, article 14 underscores the “grave obligation” of preaching the Gospel to all nations.  Respecting religious freedom does not necessitate shelving the mandate to evangelize.

Here are the Scripture references:

Matt. 28:19-20

2 Thess. 3:1

1 Tim. 2:1-4

2 Cor. 6:6-7

And the footnotes:

35. Cf. Pius XII, radio message, March 23, 1952: AAS 44 (1952) pp. 270-278.

36. Cf. Acts 4:29.

37. Cf. John XXIII, encycl. “Pacem in Terris“, April 11, 1963:AAS 55 (1963), pp. 299-300.
